Reviews and comments on Isola Madre


Lake Maggiore is a gardener's paradise. There are spectacular and interesting gardens to visit easily by boat. We preferred Isola Madre to its more famous sister - Isola Bella. It was less formal and had more flowers and plants to enjoy. It has its own microclimate and plants not hardy elsewhere grow happily there. Its setting of course is breathtaking.
