The "Circuito Turistico Borromeo" returns for the 2022 season with many new features!

Terre Borromeo's museum and nature sites are scheduled to open on 18 March 2022.

The Borromean Islands, Pallavicino Park and Mottarone Adventure Park, in the Stresa area, will welcome visitors until 1 November according to the times and rates indicated on the site www.isoleborromee.it/prenota-acquista/
One of the main novelties is the inauguration (on a date to be defined) of the Albergo Ristorante Delfino on Isola Bella: after a complex restoration, the structure is back to its former glory. Guests can enjoy two exclusive suites and a restaurant with around 150 seats, which is also open to the public all day from breakfast to dinner. Original materials and colours were used in the renovation of the building and antique details were retained to preserve the vintage allure of its architecture and furnishings.
The Albergo Ristorante Delfino will be a delightful place where to stop and relax after visiting Palazzo Borromeo and the botanical gardens on Isola Bella and the nearby Isola Madre. This solution is complemented by "Il Fornello" bistro, where you can savour tasty food and wine from local and national traditions, the cafés on both islands and the Isola Bella Apartments, available for a stay in the magical atmosphere of the islands from dawn to dusk.
In the regenerating natural oasis of Parco Pallavicino, every year young and old visitors take part in the Family Run, a non-competitive running race organised in collaboration with the Italian Red Cross - Stresa committee. The 2022 edition is scheduled for 6 April.
With over 50 species of mammals and birds, the park is an inexhaustible source of surprises for the whole family. The Botanical Treasure Hunt organised on Easter Monday, 18 April, in collaboration with Grandi Giardini Italiani on the 25th anniversary of the network, is an unmissable opportunity to explore the park's colourful gardens.
The Mottarone Adventure Park is the ideal place for those who love movement and a full immersion in the colours and sounds of the woods: from tree climbing to the Net Experience play areas, from adventure trails to bike rides, fun is guaranteed. Nearby, the Bar Stazione is perfect for a snack or light lunch. Otherwise, at the summit, the Rifugio Genziana restaurant is a well-deserved reward offering the typical flavours of the Val d'Ossola for those who have not spared themselves up and down the mountain trails. It is in this perfect setting for outdoor sports enthusiasts that on 7 and 8 May the appointment with the Vibram Trail Mottarone returns: four different distances, starting from Stresa, to test everyone according to their preparation.
