Last day of the season and the website says it opens until 6- last ticket sold at 4pm. We got here and the girl at the ticket stand said it closes at 3pm and was very rude ... What a shame- we ran to get here. Very bad customer service and very bad information on the website

So we didn't visit on the best day as it was damp. But it just seemed in need of a bit of TLC to us. Felt a bit abandoned to be honest.

Like millions of guests who visited this beautiful site we have nothing to add to its beauty, however we were somewhat disappointed from several services that to our point of view are not negligible. The toilets are disgusting, none of the restaurants/café were open, and the little train, the "Trenino" was not available at the hours it should have operate... More

Within easy 15 minutes walking distance from Stresa. The park is extensive and well maintained however at the end of the season the restaurants and cafe bars are closed - this spoilt our visit as it would have been so nice to have has a refreshment break. Small children would no doubt enjoy the animals in the park otherwise if... More

Nice walk from downtown Stresa. Visited the "zoo" first. There is a small collection of many birds, goats, a couple zebra, couple llama, north American skunk. The cages are old, limited space for the animals. Made me sad, I wanted to release them.

Lovely parkland setting with Lake views, combined with an assortment of cuddly animals, all of which are accessible for the children to stroke. An excellent cafe located in the centre of the park offers reasonable priced snacks. The gardens are surprisingly beautiful and well cared for, and are always a bonus on a great family day out.

A friend and I visited Villa Pallavicino 8 years ago and really enjoyed it. This year we were disappointed and came away feeling sad. Lawns overgrown and animals not in peak condition. The greenhouse building is run down. We both live in South Africa where there are numerous animal parks/reserves which are monitored carefully. My recommendation would be to relocate... More

Like all things in life its different folks different strokes. We both found this attraction well worth the the entrance fee of 9.50 euros. This zoo combined garden is not really a zoo in the accepted sense, it is a collection of goats donkeys deer llamas etc, all child friendly and you can touch/ sroke them which the visiting children...
