Isola del Garda

A must for nature lovers and historians……!

Just off the coast of San Felice del Benaco, the beautiful Isola del Garda makes for an interesting and thoroughly enjoyable day excursion! The island is dominated by the presence of a magnificent neo-Gothic Venetian villa that was designed at the beginning of the 20th Century and is full of interesting architectonic details. The villa is set back from terraces and immaculately landscaped Italian gardens that slope gently down to the lake offering a luxuriant vegetation that is rich exotic plants, rare essences and unique flowers of rare beauty.

This unique island, home to the Borghese Cavazza family has been opened up to the public in the last few years to create awareness about its heritage and to facilitate restoration work to the site.

The excursion includes a guided tour of some parts of the villa, the fascinating history of the Borghese Cavazza family and the beautiful natural surroundings of the park and garden.
