I visited this park one afternoon in late July, with my sister (a long time resident of Stresa) and my 5 year old daughter. The park is located a leisurely 20 minute walk away from the centre of Stresa, along the lake front. Having got there, paid and then negotiated the hill, you may be disappointed by the zoo; it...

Visited the Park in the afternoon towards closing time. Initial entry area raised hopes, but they soon diminished as we worked our way through. The toilets tell you a lot about any venue, these were a disgrace, not checked with appliances not working. The whole park had the same feel, a general lack of care and attention. I felt concerned...

The park just south of Stresa has a small parking lot, but we walked from our hotel in less than 15 minutes (from near the ferry station). The grounds are very well kept. The animal collection is modest, including mostly small-to-medium sized animals (no elephants here!). The animals seemed well cared for though I don't know whether the habitats are... More

Easy to walk with designated paths and background music by (I think) Puccini.Then we took an easy and scenic walk back to Pallanza to pick up the ferry

This looks like it has been a really lovely place in the past. However it now lacks that sparkle and the poor animals in the petting zoo look so fed up and not in as clean surroundings as they should be. Some of the gardens are very pretty and made our journey worthwhile. if you're going with children just for... More

We visited Villa Pallavicino one morning but could have spent longer walking through the beautiful gardens admiring the wonderful views of Lake Maggorie. There are a limited number of animals to see, deer, lamas, zebra, goats, kangaroos as well as some birds. We walked from Stresa which took about 15 minutes but there is a small tourist 'train' which runs... More

We came here and loved looking at the wide variety of birds and wildlife. Our favourite parts were the flower garden and the enclosure where you can walk with deer and goats. The grounds are quite steep, so I would recommend sensible footwear!

Stresa and all the surrouinding is a luxury resort for people who can afford a high payed vacation. Everything is clean and made especially for a luxury vacation. The view of Lago Magiore is gorgeous and the small town has everything for you (even a street juice at 5 euro :P ). Worth a visit. This park and the caste... More

Walked here from Stresa, which took about 10 mins. It is a zoo and gardens in one, although the animals are a little limited. You can walk in the enclosure with the deer which is nice, although watch out for the goats. The gardens are small with peacocks walking around.

We caught the little tourist road train from close to the ferry terminal for the 10 minute journey through the narrow streets of Stresa and up to the park entrance - Euros 9.50 for the return trip and entrance fee. On arrival, first impressions were not good and I am afraid nothing really changed during our hour or so there... More
