Garden Tours


Visit Lake Maggiore and be enchanted by its ultimate gardens!
The largest gardens that can be found on lake Maggiore are in Pallanza: they were established in the 1930s by a Scotsman and open to the public in the 1950s. 
Known as Villa Taranto gardens, they represent a paradise for garden lovers: over 
20 000 different species and varieties of plants can be found strolling through its lanes.
Another beautiful garden that is privately owned but can visited from March until October is the one on isola Madre, owned by the Borromeo family.
It's a lovely English-style garden that was conceived in the 19th century where many exotic as well as mediterranean species can be seen. A peaceful promenade accompanied by peacocks, phaisants and birds.
