This is by far the smallest and least spectacular garden in the area, an optional extra for the itinerary, but it does have a nice view of Lake Maggiore. There are toilets but no refreshments or shop other than a few items for sale on...More

Well worth the 4euro entry, these gardens have stunning views over Lake Maggiore. Beautiful alpine flowers and plants in quiet surroundings.

My wife and I found this rather disappointing. It is not very large and although it is probably really interesting to a botanist I suspect that many visitors come away feeling a little disappointed.

After walking down from the top of Mottarone we were looking for a picnic spot and this place certainly fit the bill. The plants were a bit sparse and unaspiring but remember these are for the most alpine plants so big blossoms isn't their thing,...More

We had no expectations and were surprised to found a quiet place to enjoy nature and views of Lago Maggiore. Belvedere is a must. Definitely worth visiting.

A couple of beautiful views and a well-minded garden and grounds. However, aside from its location halfway up the mountain outside Stresa, it provides little worth the four euros required for admission.

We took the cable car and found ourselves in a forest, full of plants and trees. The Botanical Gardens, where there is a ticket and a ticket to get in and walk, I expected him to be different. I can not say that impressive. What...More

We drove out of our way to visit this garden. Our visit was short and we left disappointed. There really isn’t much to see here. Very few plants were in bloom so there was an absence of color. However, plants were labeled and nicely arranged....More
