We only visited this because it was our last day and we had booked out of the hotel room and were trying to kill time. It was a disappointing visit. Some animal areas had signs in English and French as well as Italian, while others only had Italian signs and others had no indication of what the creature was at... More

You can spend a lovely afternoon discovering the many diferent gardens within this Villa, as well as the buildings (some are closed and used as storage, but other have lovely tea houses and souvenir shops) and the park itself.

A magnificent lakeside garden. The villa is private so you can't see the house. We have always been in April when the tulips, rhododendrons, azaleas and japonicas are magnificent. There might not be so much to see in mid-summer. There is also a zoo, but a fairly small one and probably mainly to give the kids something to look at.

We were aware that there was a zoo in Stresa but if we hadn't found it by chance one morning would have struggled to find it as it isn't that well signposted. The park is bigger than appears at first and with the well laid out gardens there is plenty to see but perhaps a little difficult for anyone with... More

We visited the park in May, there was an impressive display of rhododendrons, and a few roses but there was a lack of colour in the rest of the garden - we were just 2 or 3 weeks too early. There was an interesting & varied collection of animals and birds to see. We were concerned at the lack of... More

A garden of Eden. Animals, flowers and trees, neo-classical architecure. Banks in the shade for hot summerdays. View on the fjordlike Lago Maggiore. Good bar with nice food. This park is a place for a relaxing day!

This park is situated at the edge of Lake Maggiore just outside the town of Stresa. It is only a 10 minute walk from the town and a little miniature road train makes regular trips from the town to the top of the park. The park has some, sheep, goats, deer, peacocks and a donkey roaming free inside an expansive... More

Lovely flowers and trees in the grounds and the animals looked healthy enough in their surroundings. We caught the train up but walked back down to the main road which, if you are driving is where you park.....seemed like a bit of a jaunt up from the car park if youre old or with a pushchair!

Beautiful gardens with spring flowers in bloom at the moment. We went on a little white train which took us up to the park.
