The Isola Bella lies opposite the lido in Stresa and is the best-known of the three islands which make up the Isole Borromee. Count Carlo III Borromeo had a palace and a magnificent garden built for his wife, Isabella (from which the island’s name derives).
The Isola Madre is the largest island of the Isole Borromeo; the most characteristic for its palace and its garden boasting rare plants and exotic flowers. Peacocks, parrots and all kinds of pheasant live in freedom in the garden.
The Isola dei Pescatori lies slightly north of the Isola Bella and is occupied almost entirely by an old rural village with narrow lanes, which end in a nice walk at the northern tip of the island.
