Enjoyed our visit. The park & gardens are very nice. We are birders and we saw a Sub-Alpine warbler in the park. That made it worth the visit for me.

You can walk this from Stresa, south along the lakeshore for less than a mile. The Villa is beautiful but not open, but the gardens are most pleasant. Not top priority but worth a visit.

It is easy top walk around, but it is on a hill. You better take the little train from Stresa main square so to arrive at the top and then walk down. Come and see us!
