Visited this garden one afternoon in October. Strange place with lots of animals about, I guess to attract and amuse some of the visitors. Some good tree specimens (though not rarities) and interesting gardens - formal, wild, etc.
We bought the special price ticket which allowed us to visit the palaces on Isola Bella, Madre and the castle Rocca di Angera and Parc Villa Pallavicino for only 31 Euros for each adult. Definitely worth saving the money as each were worth visiting.
Just a few minutes walk from the centre of Stresa and you can have an excellent walk through delightful woods and gardens. It is an uphill walk through woods where you will encounter llamas,donkeys, sheep, goats and many more small animals in close proximity. The...More
We strolled here, taking the lakeside roadway. Its close to town and the gardens are lovely and well taken care of. It was a reasonable entry price and they had a package admission for multiple days to other nearby activities. This garden exceeded our expectations,...More
This is not well promoted but it has excellent botanical gardens, a petting zoo with large numbers of creatures, impressive variety of trees and a hill top restaurant with georgeous views of Lake Maggiore.

We spent several hours here, walking in the gardens, and looking and interacting with the animals, (including some Australian ones for us Aussies!). It was peaceful with plenty of space to be away from people. Some parts of the gardens obviously haven’t been able to...More
Lovely park, but beware is quite a long steepish walk up to the top, but is well shaded and you get to meet the gorgeous animals on the way, where you can mingle with the goats, Llamas and deer, who are so cute. The villa...More
We walked from our hotel (La Palma) to the park, approximately 15 minuets, and were rewarded with a great walk through a beautiful park that wasn’t groomed within an inch of its life. Everything was so natural and seeing the free roaming animals was such...More
Definitely worth visiting. Gardens are nice but all of the animals on the estate make it really fun and unique in comparison to all of the other gardens/estates in the area. It is also really nice that many of the animals are rescued and nursed...More
