Nice grounds, animals a bit few and far between.

We went to the park towards the end of our holiday and after we had been to Villa Taranto so for me it was a little bit of anti climax. As others have said the animals are a... read more

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

Caught the noddy train and entrance included. Areas are rather unkept and a few scruffy animal cages. Not impressed overall

The Villa Pallavicino is definitely worth a trip. The gardens are well manicured and the layout is very good. There is an animal pen where you can take the children in to touch the goats, deers, lamas etc. There are also a few beautiful peacocks in the rose gardens further up, which are lovely. Worth a visit!

The photo is a bit out of date as there has been a bit of storm damage which is out of their control. The gardens are very neglected in quite extensive areas. There is a zoo type enclosure with sheep and goats etc which looked well cared for but I never like to see them kept for our amusement. There... More

We went to the park towards the end of our holiday and after we had been to Villa Taranto so for me it was a little bit of anti climax. As others have said the animals are a little thin on the ground and look a bit tired. The grounds however are very nice and peaceful to walk around. Had... More

It's actually a zoo and botanic garden in one. The 'zoo' has some nice little animals like raccoons, lamas, goats and owls. It's not very big and although the animals have a lot of freedom, somehow it seems crowded and there are a lot of ants.. it gives you a natural feel though. Don't expect anything from the restaurant/bar; there... More

We walked here from the centre of Stresa a pleasant walk along the side of the lake although it was very hot, there is a noddy train that will take you there if you don't want to walk. The grounds are quite large but there are very few animals, mostly domesticated, with the odd zebra and some birds. As it... More

Fabulous park with an area where the public can interact with animals, which is great for children. Whilst we were there a fawn was born and we were able to get close enough to take some wonderful photos and a young girl was able to pet it. The mother seemed unconcerned about this, just kept a watchful eye on what... More

We walked here one morning, we almost gave up as we did not expect it to be so far out. The noddy train runs to it too. The walk was lakeside for the main part. Entrance was 9.50 euros and you were given a map. We visited the animal enclosure but felt that maybe some of the enclosures were a... More

We were in Stressa on a wet day and wandered along to the Pallavicino. When we arrived the water was flowing 'white,' but it was 'brown' by the time we left due to the amount of earth being moved by the rain! Most of the animals we saw were sensibly sheltering, like us, but it was evident that the gardens... More
