What to expect

Isola Madre and Isola Bella are both a blooming oasis immersed in the blue of Lago Maggiore. They used to be the location for the ceremonies and the feasts of the nobles, while today they are elegant estates which are open to the public. They are the most impressive islands in the archipelago, named after the Borromeo family, the noble lineage that acquired them in the XIV century and transformed them by constructing baroque palaces and rich gardens.

The islands are accessible from March to October and this ticket will allow you to see the Isola Bella and Isola Madre. In both, you will be able to visit the Borromei's Palaces - with their richly decorated halls preserving precious works of art - as well as the gardens, where statues and architectural decorations blend with the geometry of the natural setting.
