Lago Maggiore

The Botanical Gardens of Alpinia, covering approximately four hectares, is located on the slopes of Mount Mottarone, a high point in the Pre-Alps between Lake Maggiore (Verbano) and Lake Orta (Cusio).
Alpinia, located in the hamlet of Alpino di Stresa (province of Verbano - Cusio - Ossola, VB), can be reached by car from Stresa by following the signs for Gignese or from Lake Orta by passing through Armeno; alternatively, it can be reached by the cable car that goes from the waterfront of Carciano di Stresa to the top of Mount Mottarone - if you choose to take the cable car, you should get off at the intermediate stop: Alpino.
The Alpinia Botanical Garden, established in 1934 by Igino Ambrosini and Giuseppe Rossi, was created with the aim of protecting one of the most panoramic spots in the Alpine hamlet. Thanks to this initiative, visitors can still walk through the rocky flowerbeds of the park up to the panoramic point where the slope offers an enchanting view of Lake Maggiore, ranging from the islands of the Borromeo Gulf to the surrounding mountain ranges.
