We took a day trip via train to Stresa, Italy at Lago Maggiore. From there we boarded a boat for a 10 minute ride to Isola Bella, a small island in the lake. On the island you will find a palace, restaurants and small shops. Our first stop was at the palace, built by Borromeo for his wife. There are so many interesting rooms filled with art work and other treasures, but my favorite was the seashell room. Then you walk out into the beautiful gardens, one after another. You will even see white peacocks in the garden. This is where you will find the best views of the lake and the mountains surrounding.
