You can only get there by boat (the fist plus in my view)- and there is a ticket for all of the Borromeo Islands. Just amazing - many writers only focus on the gardens (which are beautiful) but do not ignore the palaces & collections. All beautifully displayed & maintained. I will cerainly return

This hop on/off cruise from Stresa to the 3 Islands is so unique The beauty of Isola Madre and Bella is unbelievable. Loved all the birds on Isola Madre. The palace on Isola Bella we superior. Don't miss them. Get food for the day at the many restaurants on the small fisherman's island.

We didn't got the time to reach the "official boat trip office" as we got stopped by really convincing people with casquettes. They recommended to start with Pallazio Borromeo, eat on the fishers' island and end at Isola Bella. It was really good to start with the Borromeo garden and Pallazio: less people in the morning and pleasant temperature. There's is one boat every half hour from one to the other island, and it is not a big issue to wait a bit (do not expect a ti e schedule)

Suggest that you get a rove ticket for the ferry and make the most of the islands on the lake. It is a good idea to get there early or go on a "changeover day" as it will be more quiet on the island. Great gardens and house with views over the lake.

Having read the reviews recommending the Ferry over the private boats,we came out of our hotel crossed the road and were met by a man wearing a hat and uniform and we were immediately talked into buying a ticket for the 3 islands. I asked if it was for the ferry and he said it was for a better trip than on the ferry! Gullible or what?! Private parties were given priority when being picked up and we were left waiting. The following day we decided to take the ferry to Intra. Again we were met by a man in a hat and uniform as we walked to the ferry terminal. He tried to persuade us to have a private boat to Intra. Very pushy. We refused and bought a ferry ticket. The boat stopped at all three islands and then we crossed over to Intra. Much better by far and more flexible. And much more room.
