This was my favourite tour out of Milan. The Borromeo Islands are out of this world with picture card beauty. We coached to Stresa, did a brief walking tour and then boarded a small boat to cruise past Isola Madre before reaching Isola Bella. Words cannot describe the beauty of this island and the Borromeo Palace, which is still used by the Borromeo family. The guided tour [1 hour] was excellent - very controlled and only small groups at any given time. The tour takes you into rooms with amazing history, decor and murano glass chandeliers. After the tour we had free time to visit the terraced gardens - so so beautiful, and if you were lucky, the white peacocks were out and about. We then continued with a short boat trip to Isola dei Pescatorie [fisherman's island] where we had free time to explore and have a late lunch before heading back to Milan. A most wonderful day! Again thanks to the Zani Viaggi coach driver and tour guide.Reviewed by: Lee, Australia, October 2013
Recommend this trip to everyone; very informative and nice guide, luxury bus and good value for money.
Try to eat at Ristorante Casabella at the island - life can't be more nicer at that terrasse.
Excellent tour, beautiful landscape ;the Borromeo Palace has great gardens , a pleasure for eyes.
The tour is very relaxing, the lake is not far from Milan, the agency(Zani Viaggi) is very professional
