One of the best known and most prestigious holiday resorts in Europe, Stresa is situated in an amazing position, facing the Borromeo gulf and on the slopes of mount Mottarone.

The first stop is at Isola Bella, for the (optional) visit of the Baroque-style palace and the wonderful Italian garden as well as the small village.  Then, with 10 minutes sailing, it is possible to reach Isola Superiore (dei Pescatori) where you can have lunch in one of the various typical restaurants. After lunch and a nice walk through the streets of the island, by one of the many boats connections, in 35 minutes sailing, you can reach he botanical garden of Villa Taranto located on the coast between Pallanza and Intra, the fame it enjoys throughout the world for its blooms and rare plant species does not relieve even the most hurried people from spending there a couple of hours.
