Best to visit in combination with 3 island hopping. This island is the 2nd stop and for sure the most impressing one. The palazzo is huge and has so much to see (if you are willing to pay 16€ per person). In combination with the...More
We walked towards the ferry kiosk but were intercepted by a guy talking about the three island tour. He redirected us to a perfectly good looking booth and sold us a pair of tickets for the day.
Then chaperoned us to a small vessel off...More
Stunning island with beautiful gardens. We did the day trip visiting all 3 islands - Isola Madre first, Superiore second and Bella last, and timed it so that we had lunch on Superiore which was really good. The gardens and whole island are beautifully maintained...More
We greatly enjoyed touring this palace and gardens. The family symbol is a unicorn and the family motto is “humility”. That just cracks me up! It is a beautiful and ornate palace with extensive art collection.
This is well worth a visit. There are a lot of rooms to go through the Palace with some fantastic history and great views over the lake. The stone grottoes on the lower level are particularly exciting to go through. After that, the gardens are...More
The villa is certainly spectacular but the gardens are amazing and we could have spent the entire day there
The boat ride to the island was fun
A bit crowded but the garden cafe was relaxing and delicious
I once saw an aerial DVD with sites all over Italy, Isola Bella really stood out and becoming one of the site I would like to visit. It is extremely touristy, but quite worth the effort with the beautiful gardens and romantic back story. Be...More
The Island is really small with a market place and the castle with garden. The market place is nothing special. The castle is ok and the gardens are very nice but it’s extremely expensive to enter. The entry fee for an adult is 16€ and...More
The palace was way grander than I expected, quite breathtaking. But it was the gardens I loved most. An exquisite setting on the lake. When getting ferry tickets from Baveno, it was suggested we did Isola Madre first, but after reading something here on trip...More

Hi, there are boats to the Isola Bella and the other islands, leaving quite frequently. You will need at least two hours to see the palace and the gardens, but four would be better. There are cafes and food stalls near the landing on the island, and a cafe at the far end of the gardens. It’s definitely worth a visit. Do check the websites for boat and opening times, and enjoy your trip.

This Isola Bella place is not accessible at all! You can’t go anyware without walking on the stairs. There are stairs on the palace and a lot of stairs in the baroque garden. I didn’t notice any elevators nor ramps. But i did see older people with walking sticks so if your parents manage to walk a lot of stairs, maybe... There is one guided road through the palace and you can get to the garden only by walking through the whole palace.
