Isola Madre in the mist

Gustave Flaubert, writing in 1845 about Isola Madre: paradis terrestre; arbres à feuilles d’or que le soleil dorait… C’est le lieu du golfe le plus voluptueux que j’ai vu, la nature vous y charme de mille séductions étranges, et l’on se sent dans un état tout sensuel et tout exquis.

Isola Madre is a wonderful botanical garden, that you can visit from April to October.

Together with Isola Bella and Isolino S. Giovanni, it is privately owned by the Borromeo family.
