Stresa, called the Queen of Lake Maggiore, is in a magnificent panoramic position, under the green slopes of Mottarone. The numerous villas, parks, gardens, the beautiful flowery lakeshore and the centre of the town full of shops and restaurants, make Stresa one of the most important tourist destinations of Lake Maggiore.

 From here you can visit the Borromean Islands:

Isola Bella, Borromeo Palace and Garden:

In 1670 the Count Vitaliano Borromeo began to build the monumental Baroque palace and the majestic scenery of the gardens. The Borromeo estate contains invaluable works of art: tapestries, furniture and paintings. The gardens, rich in every variety of rare plants and flowers, develops into ornate and overlaid terraces: they are a classic, inimitable example of an "Italian garden" of the time.

Isola Pescatori or Isola Superiore:

a little more than 300 meters long and about 100 meters wide, the Isola Superiore boasts the charm of a typical fishing village set on an Island in the middle of the Borromean Gulf.

The tangle of alleyways overlooking the lake and the characteristic parish church of St. Vittore make the charm of the place unique.

Isola Pescatori owes its name to the peculiar activity of its inhabitants.

Isola Madre, Botanical Gardens and Palace:

Isola Madre is particularly famous for the flowering of azaleas, rhododendrons and camellias. In 1978, the 16th century palace, interesting for the reconstruction of vintage rooms and for collections of liveries, dolls and china was open to the public.
