The medieval garden becomes the perfect place to discover new and unusual botanical varieties, to appreciate the simplicity of the plants cultivated in antiquity and be surprised by the life cycle of nature as it is transformed each season. The collection of the Museum of Dolls and Toys – the largest of Europe – will amaze you with its automatons coming from all over the world, telling of the world of play in past centuries.

The activities are designed for infant, primary and lower-level secondary schools.

Isola Bella & Isola Madre

Isola Bella & Isola Madre

Isola Bella is the ideal destination to immerse yourself in the Baroque age.
A guide will accompany the youngsters around the 17th-century princely dwelling, telling of the rich treasures safeguarded in the twenty rooms of Palazzo Borromeo: paintings, tapestries, carved wood, statues, sumptuous furnishings and the important Painting Gallery or the General Berthier Gallery, the only art gallery that remains from among the many that existed in Northern Italy and that have been lost over the years.

It has more than one hundred and thirty works on display, from the followers of Leonardo to the masters of 17th-century Lombardy.
The adventure continues in the mosaic grottoes, a cool, delightful place at water level, and with walks in the splendid Italian-style garden with its terraces in bloom, fountains and statues representing rivers, winds and seasons.
If you climb the steps of the Teatro Massimo, it will be possible to admire the panorama of Lago Maggiore as though you were on the deck of a sailing ship.

Famous for the extraordinary blooms that make it unique, on Isola Madre expert guides will accompany the young visitors on a tour devoted to knowledge of the incredible botanical varieties from all over the world.
When you immerse yourself in this luxuriant nature, it will be clear why Gustave Flaubert defined it as an earthly paradise. Not to be missed in the sixteenth-century Palazzo with the precious reconstruction of period rooms is the extraordinary collection of puppet theatres and 17th-century marionettes. Unique locations that have fascinated visitors of every age, from Napoleon to Charles Albert of Savoy, from Flaubert to Oscar Wilde.

"Come varia il colore
delle stagioni,
così gli umori e i pensieri degli uomini.
Tutto nel mondo è mutevole tempo.
Ed ecco, è già pallido,
sepolcrale autunno,
quando pur ieri imperava
la rigogliosa quasi eterna estate."
(Vincenzo Cardarelli)

C’è qualcosa della natura, nei mesi più silenziosi, che ha sempre ispirato poeti, scrittori e artisti. Questa forse è la ragione che li ha portati anche sull'Isola Bella e sull'Isola Madre.

Vi viene in mente qualche nome famoso?

"As the color of
the seasons varies,
so do the moods and thoughts of men.
Everything in the world changes with time.
And behold, the already pale,
sepulchral autumn,
When yesterday the luxurious,
almost eternal summer ruled."
(Vincenzo Cardarelli)
✨
There is something about nature, in the quietest months, that has always inspired poets, writers and artists. Maybe that's the reason that brought them to Isola Bella and Isola Madre. 
🧡
Does any of those famous names come to your mind?

“Un baffo per la prevenzione” è il nome della campagna di sensibilizzazione verso i tumori maschili che per tutto il mese di novembre accompagnerà le iniziative del movimento Movember.
.
Se fosse partita nel 1600, siamo sicuri che anche Vitaliano VI Borromeo avrebbe partecipato a questa importante iniziativa per la nostra salute.

"A mustache for prevention" is the name of the campaign to raise awareness of male cancers and throughout November it will accompany the initiatives of the Movember movement.

If it had existed in 1600, we are sure that Vitaliano VI Borromeo would also have participated in this important initiative for our health.

Un bellissimo parco da visitare nel weekend.
