Lake Maggiore

Guided visit to the botanical gardens of Villa Taranto which are an absolute must on Lake Maggiore.
“A beautiful garden does not need to be big, but it should be the realization of one’s dream, even though it is only a couple of square metres large and it is situated on a balcony”. So explained Captain Neil Mc Eacharn, the man who created these marvellous gardens. Excursion by private boat from Cannobio, entrance fee and guide included.
