Palazzo Borromeo reviews
Visiting the palace is a must, the experience is unique and it is nice to see how well the rooms and furniture are keps. more »
We hadn't done a lot of research so ended up getting a ferry to three islands. We went late in the day which meant there were fewer visitors (which was great). We have seen quite a few palaces but.... more »
This is by far the most interesting island of the 3 that you can visit on this tour. We took the boat from Stresa which is one of the closest town in the area. As mentioned in various posts, the islands can be visited by using a huge variety of boat operators. We took the big boat boat instead of using one of the various charters. This was a very good choice as they come and go on each island every 30 minutes. The wait to get on them is never long and the time tables on each island are very accurate. We also saw people in wheelchairs boarding the boats and they had a lot of room for them. As for the palace, it’s amazing what you can do with a lot of money and 3 centuries worth of building time!!! The attention to details in each room is amazing. The tour makes you go in all the palace and it’s very easy to follow. Several panels (FR/EN/IT) explain the history of the place. We spent 2 hours enjoying the palace and it’s gardens. Worth every pennies!!!
Wow. Very grand, huge and interesting Palace. Well worth a visit. The gardens are also very impressive with far reaching views across the lake. Would highly recommend a visit and at €17 worth it. Lots of places to eat and drink aswell. Easily accessed by boat.
