It is the second largest among Italian lakes after Lake Garda. The archipelago of the three Borromeo islands, of geographical,
historical and cultural interest, renders this area unique and unforgettable. Isola Superiore, also known as the "fishermen's
island" to highlight the traditional work of its inhabitants, is a spectacular maze of picturesque and charming alleys, with
its typical white houses with colourful doors and windows, which impressed famous visitors like Hernest Hemingway, Arturo
Toscanini and George Bernard Shaw. On Isola Bella you can admire the ancient buildings in which the Borromeos lived in the
17th century. The gardens, rich in plants and flowers of all types and covering ten overlapping terraces, embellished by
fountains, statues and architectural structures, are very spectacular. Isola Madre boasts a luxurious garden with wonderful
plants and even some exotic varieties, surrounding a sixteenth century palace.
