 b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_5142-bis-640x480.jpgHello my friends! Welcome to My Own Italy to discover Italy with my personal touch!

Our travel today is to a must see destination: the Borromean Islands, in the Lake Maggiore in Piedmont .   

The three Borromean Islands in the heart of the Gulf opposite Stresa are uniquely picturesque and eternally fascinating.

They are so beautiful and enchanting: have a look to the pictures HERE...

 During your holiday in Italy you can't miss a must see destination: Isola Bella.
  In 1632, Count Vitaliano Borromeo began the construction of the monumental Baroque palace and the majestic and scenic gardens, which have made the island famous and which to this day bear witness to the splendours of an era.


The Borromeo family palace offers visitors an elegant and sumptuous setting, and it contains priceless works of art such as tapestries, furniture, statues, paintings, and stuccoes.

It also has an unusual mosaic grotto, a cool and delightful place.



  When you are in Isola Bella,
once you have visited the Villa, you can enjoy the incredible flavours through the access to the garden for a pleasant walk: the colours and the smells are so intense and envolving!

The enchanting gardens form an extraordinary, flowered monument laid out over a series of ornate and overlapping terraces, a classic and inimitable example of seventeenth century "Italian garden".

The gardens contains many rare and exotic plants, and the spectacular blossoming is planned to ensure that it is filled with colours and scents from March until October.


 You can also enjoy the beautiful white peacocks and their incredible wheel: absolutely beautiful!
I'm sure will be a fantastic journey across history and a typical Italian landscape.
Leisure me, this is my tourism!
