Activities/Attractions: Stresa is a beautiful, small town of about 5,000 inhabitants on the shores of the Lago (Lake) Maggiore and situated on the road and rail routes to the Simplon pass in the region of Piedmont, Italy. Stressa is surrounded by mountains and home to the Borromean Islands, Isola Bella, Superiore de Pescatori and Isola Madre.
Because these three islands are so different from each other, it's worth visiting them all. Isola Bella, the nearest, is occupied mainly by Palazzo Borromeo, whose formally terraced gardens are open from April through October. The largest island, Isola Madre, has perhaps the most spectacular gardens of the whole area. It is a subtropical paradise (open April-October). Isola dei Pescatori, the third island, is a charming fishermen's village.
If you enjoy beautiful gardens, Stresa is the town for you. On the road from Arona is the Villa Pallavicino (open March-October, 9-6), glorious example of the art of blending manicured gardens with spontaneous local foliage. North of town is another magnificent garden, the 50-acre Villa Taranto (open April-October, 8:30-6:30). From the landing stage in town, take a traghetto (ferry) over to the Isole Borromeo.
