    The Isola Bella is an amazing place, thanks to the ever-recurring flowering of flowers and the inestimable art treasures that merge together in a harmonious microcosm. After transforming from a rock into a flower garden, today the island now looks like a ship gliding through the blue waters of Lake Maggiore, as was the intention of its creator, Vitaliano VI Borromeo.

    A visit is worth rather outside the main season, if the tourist rush is not too big.

The Isola Bella was during the 18th century as a wonder of the world, in the reign of Carlo III. Borromeo has been sustainably influenced. Once the island was mainly lined with rocks. Carlo III.
