Villa Pallavicino was a private residence in 1855, when it was purchased by Ruggero Bonghi, statesman and writer. In 1862 the ownership was transferred to the noble Genoese Pallavicino family who enlarged the estate, transforming it into a...more

This is another wonderful place located on the lake maggiore very close to stresa.
Another piece of paradise,we walk a lot to be honest because the park is very big but is absolutly fantastic.

Lovely parkland setting with Lake views, combined with an assortment of cuddly animals, all of which are accessible for the children to stroke. An excellent cafe located in the centre of the park offers reasonable priced snacks.
The gardens are surprisingly beautiful and well cared...More
