Route Isola Madre Lake Maggiore


The solitary and luxuriant Mother Island is in the town of Stresa and is covered for the greater part of its surface by a botanical garden of remarkable interest.

The Island is the largest of the Borromeo Gulf, not too far from Stresa and near Isola Bella. It was the summer residence of the noble family of the Borromeo.

Apart from being luxurious and shaded the island is covered by tree-lined avenues along its shores.Inside of the Palace which dates back to the XVI century are collections of antiques books and pottery, and also a rare collection of ancient marionettes.
