We took a boat from Porto di Torchio to Isola del Garda and then had an extremely informative and interesting guided tour in English (German and Italian available) around the grounds and palace finishing with wine and olive oil tasting. Fantastic afternoon.

The tour to the Isola del Garda was spectacular! It is very well organized, including the boat ride to the island. The island is in incredible good shape, the gardens, the buildings, are in perfect condition. The story of the island and the Cavazza-Borghese family is amazing. The special part of that is that you will have the Contessa Alberta Cavazza-Borghese giving you the tour in English! that is something you won't see anywhere else in the planet! Her English is impecable since her mother is from London. She put some much effort to tell us their story, like it was the 1st time she've done it. Incredible low profile (considering her Nobel status), was like being in a fairy tale story. Amazing how the whole family managed to keep this property in such a great shape and even more impressive they decided to share that gorgeous place with us. Extremely recommended!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A pure gem nestled in the crystal clear waters of Lake Garda. Run by the Cavazza family, with immense passion and incredible care of such a beautiful ancient villa and island. A magical venue for a fairytale wedding! I would highly recommend a tour if you are in the area. 5 stars!

This is the sort of island that dreams are made of. An historic but homely house occupying as island on one of Italy's most beautiful lakes. The tour is fascinating, and reasonably priced, the house and gardens are wonderful and the wine and nibbles at the end of the tour are just what you need while you sit and soak up the ambience. One of my favourite places in the world.

We booked the tour directly with our hotel (Hotel Continental) and took the boat from the hotel's private jetty; the boat trip was about 45 minutes. We were met by the English speaking guide, who took us on a fascinating tour of the island which is covered by parks and gardens and dominated by the Venetian Neogothic 'Villa Borghese Cavazza'. The house is the former home of the Dukes of Ferrari but is now in the careful ownership of the Borghese Cavazza family, who have lovingly transformed the whole island. The tour concludes with drinks and nibbles on the terrace, overlooking the Lake. A hugely enjoyable afternoon !!
