Isole Borromee

Highly recommended
These three superb little islands took the name of the Borromee family who had received Lake Maggiore as a fiefdom in the 15C. Charles III occupiedIsola Bella in the 17 C and built apalace there that is typical of Lombardy Baroque style and is composed of many staterooms and "caves". It also has admirablegardens .Isola dei Pescatori has preserved its atmosphere of yesteryear andIsola Madre is totally taken up by a superb exotic garden.
