What a find just about a 20 minute walk from our hotel. This was just incredible & so well thought out especially being able to mingle with the animals. We just loved it.

Visited these lovely gardens which included some delightful animals. A nice afternoon out and only about a 10 minute drive from Stresa. We got our hotel to book a taxi for 10 Euros each way

The Park Pallavicino is a small zoo with gardens, it's a bit of a hidden gem and doesn't seem to be that well publicised, there wasn't any leaflets for it in our hotel, or at the ferry terminals. We'd visited before, and it has been...More
