Terre Borromeo Experience

Immersed in the suggestive waters of Lake Maggiore, the  Borromean Islands are jaw-droppingly beautiful. Loved by Ernest Hemingway and, in more recent times, by the English Royals, this Archipelago is made up of the monumental Isola Bella, with its 17th-Century Palazzo Borromeo, surrounded by scenographic gardens, the picturesque Isola dei Pescatori (Fishermen’s Island), Isola Madre, noted for its botanical garden, rich in rare plants. On the other shore of the lake, the medieval castle of Rocca di Angera will welcome you in a magical alchemy of spectacular panoramas, large courtyards, elegant halls, frescoed vaults and views of rare charm.

They are open both for the everyday entrances and private visits at the end of the day. Behind closed gates, a guide will lead guests through the history and art of the Palaces, and walk them along the striking beauty of the Gardens. A lovely aperitif served on panoramic terraces will end the evening in pursuit of style and elegance. A unique mix of heritage, art and nature makes these locations perfect to be both explored or  hired for private events, exclusive meetings, weddings and parties in grand style.
