Loved the Gardens, they were more impressive then I remembered from my previous visit. really well laid out and such an amazing variety of flowers and plants. Coupled with the views of the lake it doesn't get better then this.

This place is stunning! Absolutely stunning. We were lucky with the time that we came, in that the Rhododendrons and Azaleas were in full bloom. Great views of the lake and surrounding mountains and even Verbania.

Only azaleas were in bloom when we visited. Garden has great trees and grounds but it was disappointing not to see a lot of flowers. We visited on May 8. Azaleas in Stresa city were as beautiful as the ones in Villa Taranto.

This is surely one of the most gorgeous botanical gardens I have seen. We did not even know about Villa Taranto at all; I found out about it from one of the frequent posters on the TA forums. So glad we went! We arrived early...More

An Italian Friend advised us to visit Villa Taranto when we were by Lagio Maggiore. Let me tell you: I will go back. Maybe in April when the Bulp Plants are flowering. In May it was amasing trees and Bushes in full Flowers. And what...More

Limited parking, boat is a good option, we took an electric scooter, it will take some time with a manual wheelchair, some slopes are steep but plenty to see on level.
