  • Simply fabulous! Do not miss seeing this fantastic place. It is amazing to see the opulence in which this family lived. The art collection is extensive, and the grounds are just breathtaking!!  more »
  • This island has the most amazing palace and garden. We could have spent the whole day roaming the grounds. Has to be the number one attraction in the Lago Maggiore region.  more »
  • one of the worst expirience of museum visit in my life. 1. in the palace there are no seats. practically, in 2 hours of walking inside there is no one possibility for taking rest. 2. in one of the rooms they are 300 pictures. it's not the good way to show the art. 3. the park is small. well, it doesn't worth spent €17. villa Taranto is much better.
  • Took about 2 hours to fully walk through the palace & garden and take plenty of photos. Fewer crowds in the morning. Masks mandatory. Fever check at door. Online tix could save time. Having visited Isola Bella and Isola Madre, I found Bella to be enough for a full experience of the Borromeo family’s opulence. In my opinion, this could be an excellent event venue, especially for weddings. In case anyone wonders, unicorn is the family’s coat of arms. Citrons are the islands’ famous produce. Peacocks roam wild in the garden as they wish. 🦄🍋🦚🇮🇹
