We will sail towards Isola Bella from Stresa, Baveno or Pallanza at the end of the afternoon just before closing time. Walking through the richly decorated rooms of the Borromeo Palace you will be able to learn about the family's story, the works of art, the construction of the palace/castle and any curiosity you may have. Then we will enjoy a stroll in the spectacular gardens among exotic plants, flowers and peacocks. We will then move to Fishermen's island to explore it when the crowds are gone at a beautiful time of the day when the shades get longer before sunset.


Isola Bella is the most fabulous Borromeo island located in the Stresa - Borromean Gulf and if, for any reason, you can only visit one island, isola Bella is absolutely a must-see.

It houses amazing gardens in Italian style whose construction started in 1630. Once in the gardens,  you will be welcomed by a striking structure, the amphitheatre, which consists of a spectacular pyramid all adorned with flowers, niches, statues, fountains and is dominated by the Borromeo family's most important heraldic symbol, the unicorn. The pyramid-like structure hides ten beautiful terraces, one above the other, that look towards Stresa and its Grand Hotels.

The Borromeo palace dating back to the 17th century surprises travellers with its astonishing richness: fine period furniture, remarquable paintings, magnificent tapestries and the stunning Grottoes all decorated with volcanic stones and pebbles.

The island's tiny village is really picturesque with only 15 inhabitants all the year round!
