October and Isola Bella Gardens?

During the first 2 weeks of October is there much bloom in the gardens of Isola Bella,Isola Superiore, & Isola Madre?

Is much open at Stresa and Como or is the fall season coming to a close?

1. Re: October and Isola Bella Gardens?

We visited Isola Madre yesterday and I think you should be okay for flowers in early October. It was very colourful with lots of Bouganvillias and Hibiscus that should last a few more weeks, and the water lilies were beautiful. Isola Bella was not so good for colour, the garden was not as good as we expected so you'd do best to get a combined day ticket to see both islands in the same day, but leave more time for Isola Madre. There was a bad storm here a couple of weeks ago that did some damage to Isola Bella, so I think they have had to close off some sections of the garden.
