Isola Bella is a marvelous island located in the Borromeo gulf, in front of Stresa. Most of the island is private but open to the public. I will show you the historical Borromeo palace, a big building dating back to the 17th century. After visiting ancient rooms with tapestries, fine forniture, Murano glass chandeliers, we will stroll around the magnificent formal gardens, built on 10 levels just by the lake. On the island is also a tiny village as well as restaurants and cafés.
