The "Circuito Turistico Borromeo" returns for the 2023 season with many new features!

The museum and nature sites of the Terre Borromeo circuit on Lake Maggiore - Isola Bella, Isola Madre, Rocca di Angera and Parco Pallavicino - will reopen on 16 March 2023. On 6 April it will be the turn of the Mottarone Adventure Park, the adventure park in the Mottarone woods.
The tourist season, with novelties, cultural events, musical events and new food and wine proposals, will continue until 5 November.

In Stresa, on Isola Bella, the experience of relaxing at the exclusive Delfino, the restaurant symbol of timeless elegance, will be enchanting. Landing on Isola Madre, one then enters a fabulous world of exotic fragrances from the English-style botanical garden and enchanted atmospheres among the rooms of the Palace where one can retrace the private dimension of the Borromeo family through various eras. Terre Borromeo also joins the Stresa Festival programme this year: classical and jazz concerts are scheduled at the end of August and in early September to experience the emotion of music in an exceptional setting, lulled by the lake. On Isola Bella the artists will perform on the special acoustic stage the Catapult, made entirely of wood. On Isola Madre, the setting for the concerts is the Loggia del Cashmir.
Parco Pallavicino is also enriching its services to entertain tourists during their visit to this oasis covering 18 hectares, including playful encounters with farm animals and nature walks to admire the more than 60 species of mammals and birds that are welcomed and cared for daily. In June, we would like to point out that Terre Borromeo will organise a day dedicated to honey produced by hand in its apiary consisting of about 12 hives, and on 23/04 the Family Run, a running race of about 6km, non-competitive and open to all. For residents of Stresa, 16 March, the first day of opening, admission is free. One of the family events to mark in the calendar is the Treasure Hunt organised in collaboration with Grandi Giardini Italiani on 10 April, Easter Monday, also at Pallavicino Park. The Mottarone Adventure Park offers sport and adventure for everyone! After the reopening on 6 April, 2 new areas will be opened on 1/06: An aerial zipline course for a full adrenaline rush and fun, and another medium difficulty course with pitches at a height of 7 metres from which to launch yourself in total safety thanks to the continuous lifeline system. Cycling enthusiasts will be able to rent e-bikes or MTBs in the park, at the Bar Stazione, and return them at the summit at the Rifugio Genziana or in Stresa at the Parco Pallavicino. We would like to point out the evening sports event on 10 August "Motty on the moon" (10 kilometre run).
There is great expectation, finally, for the new contemporary art exhibition organised in the evocative restored rooms of the Ala Scaligera at the Rocca di Angera, on the Lombard side of Lake Maggiore. The exhibition will run from 17/04 to 1/10.
We would also like to point out that the new free official is available as of this year, which will provide users with useful references for visiting the Borromeo destinations in one place. (Info: or + 39 0323.933478).
