Isola Bella. Palazzo Borromeo



This palace is a veritable treasure trove of Baroque art suspended over the water. Visiting it one passes through elegantly furnished salons, which offer incredible views of Lake Maggiore. Paintings by famous artists, fine furniture, antique sculptures, marble, neoclassical stuccoes, Flemish silk and gold armour and tapestries. Not to be missed is the General Berthier gallery with its 130 paintings as well as the pebble-covered grottos on the lower floor, a place of coolness and delight.
