Easy to get to by boat - has it's own stop. Map is helpful to get around. Nice café by the main pond and good views of the lake. Easy to spend a couple of hours here.

This is an amazing place on the Lake Maggiore. A must-visit spot. One could stroll around all day long and enjoy the magnificent gardens, while the stunning views over the Lake are the "cherry on top"

Originally a private villa, now an open garden (an entry fee applies). The garden is a mixture of formal and informal. Take your time and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere.

Limited parking, boat is a good option, we took an electric scooter, it will take some time with a manual wheelchair, some slopes are steep but plenty to see on level.
