4 islands, 4 dreams

The Borromean islands are located in the middle of Maggiore Lake, in the lakes district of Italy. Four Islands compose this archipelago: Isola Bella, Isola dei Pescatori, Isola Madre and Isolino di san Giovanni, but only three of those can be visited. In the “Isola Bella” we will see the famous Palazzo Borromeo, where the Borromeo family has lived for many centuries. In the Palace, we can admire the famous gallery rich of baroque art pieces, and the cave of the palace decorated by natural river stones, the beautiful garden with a large variety of birds. Then we will reach Isola Madre by our private boat. This Island is called “Madre” because it was probably the first island to be inhabited. Here we will visit the botanic garden and the museum accompanied by a private expert local guide. We conclude the tour visiting the third island: Isola dei Pescatori. Here you can spend your free time around the village, where 50 citizens live.
