  • Walk the island's English Gardens – part of the Grandi Giardini Italiani network – with flora including a rare Kashmir cypress tree
  • Step inside the Palazzo Borromeo, home to the aristocratic Borromeo family, and admire its Venetian lounge and marionette theater
  • Enjoy a day on the largest of the Borromean Islands and gaze out at the mountainous horizon of Lake Maggiore

With fair weather and scenic vistas surrounding Isola Madre, it's the perfect location for a walk through a botanical paradise. Enjoy the reflection of sunlight on calm blue waters while admiring the carefully kept English gardens and its myriad flowers.

After exploring the island, you'll understand why the Borromeo family built a palace here! Inside the home you can peruse reception rooms fit for royalty (there's a room Napoleon stayed in) and filled to the brim with antique furniture.

Swap your smartphone voucher for a paper ticket at the ticket office. The ticket office can be seen right after your landing on the island.
