We went there in the trenino - tiny train which we expected to make a tour of Stresa on the way, but it simply went straight uphill to the Villa. The gardens had some interesting exotic plants and shrubs - lovely colours and flowers but not spectacular. Saw flamingos and some birds (giant macaws, pretty multi-colured rosellas,) but very few animals and the cages did not look good. The park is very poorly signposted, so we never seem to have reached the part where the main animals supposedly were. It was a lovely day and we enjoyed the garden but it was on the whole rather disappointing.
