Isola Bella The Beautiful Island on Lake Maggiore in Stresa, Italy
Isola Bella is located on Lake Maggiore in Northern Italy's Lake District. You can read about Italy's Northern Lake Region and see more photos and many videos here:
The Northern Italian Lake District is one of the more beautiful regions in Italy and has attracted dozens of celebrities over the years including George Clooney who now owns a home in Bellagio.
The climate is a micro-climate and although it is close to the Northern Italian lakes, it is a very tropical climate and offers quite warm temperatures. It's a great place to visit and particularly for those interested in gardens and beautiful scenery, this is a fantastic area to visit.

Isola Bella at Stresa, on Lake Maggiore in Italy's Beautiful Lake District
Isola Bella is a beautiful garden-covered island in Italy's Lake District. Located on Lago Maggiore or Lake Maggiore (the second largest lake in Italy, Isola Bella is accessible from the town of Stresa. Although literally translated, it means Beautiful Island, it was actually named after Queen Isabella from Spain and was built by her husband as a testament to her beauty. Today the gardens at Isola Bella are certainly considered to be some of the most beautiful in all of Italy and are certainly worthwhile of a visit. Nearby are the Taranto gardens, also worthwhile of exploration as are many of the gardens and the towns located in Italy's lake district.
