The best of Verbania: the Museum of Landscape and Villa Taranto botanical garden

By Book Your Italy DMC
Verbania is the chief town of the district around lake Maggiore; Pallanza, one of its centers, hosts the City hall and some of its most remarkable attractions. Among these, the outstanding Museum of Landscape, located in Palazzo Viani- Dugnani, keeps a vast collection of paintings, sculptures and photographs related to the culture and history of Lombardy and Piedmont. This private tour will lead you to discover these collections and, after a pleasant walk, to experience a visit to Villa Taranto botanical gardens: a unique 18 hectares park created by a Scottish traveller, featuring rare plants, trees and flowers from all over the world. Two different ways to witness the wonders of the landscapes of Lake Maggiore, which you will surely remember for long.

      Wonderful experience!
      Despite having visited Milan a couple times before, I knew nothing about the canals in Milan. We easily navigated via the subway to visit one afternoon. It was delightful! the atmosphere reminded me of Burano. There were lots of artists exhibiting opposite outdoor cafes. We enjoyed the food and ambience as well as the shopping.

      Once in a lifetime experience!
      This was an absolutely unimaginably wonderful experience. Our skipper Domenico was knowledgeable about so many things and provided such informative commentary along the way, including stories about growing up in Vernazza and what it’s like to live in Cinque Terre, what wines to buy from the area, the best places to eat — it was so nice to have that inside track. On top of everything, we had beautifully calm waters for the sunset trip, and my husband and I truly felt like we were able to celebrate our anniversary in style. Thank you so much! I wish I could give more stars. Highly recommended!

      The Awesome view from my hotel room
      Earl's Regency Hotel Kandy is a beautiful hotel to relax, with a stunning view. I enjoyed my stay every minute, with the view in the morning , afternoon and night. The cool breeze, the hills around you and the greenery environment. The staff was very good and very helpful. Reception staff, bell boys and room service . I have no complains and definitely would check in on my next visit to Kandy. Very easy to go to the town, reasonable cab charge. Staff has always been very helpful. I highly recommend and traveler's going to Kandy, must at least spend one night in this hotel , you will love it and agree with me. Good Luck . Rodney Deckker

      One of the highlights of our time in Florence
      This trip was an extraordinary experience and one of the highlights of our time in Florence. What a privilege to be on the Arno river, floating beneath the Ponte Vecchio, seeing Florence from a whole different perspective. And for us, the private aspect was the icing on the cake. Our boatman and guide (Massimo) was great, giving us lots of history about Florence, the bridges, the buildings, etc.

      Amazing experience
      This trip was an amazing experience and our guide ( Domenico) ensured that we’re having the true cinque terre experience. I strongly recommend this as a must do during your visit in these 5 fairytale villages. Wine, focaccia and sunset on the boad, i loved it!

      Great comprehensive tour
      This was a lovely tour, very relaxed but included all the best things about Sirmione which we could easily have visited ourselves but we would have missed so many details and facts. The little boat trip was, for the kids at least, the best bit. Our guide, Sara, was great, extremely knowledgeable as well as friendly and professional.

    Gentile Silvia, grazie per le belle parole circa il Museo del Paesaggio di Verbania, un vero scrigno di gioielli per lo più sconosciuto al turismo di massa, che ci permette di distinguere il nostro tour operator nel panorama dei prodotti italiani di qualità. Distinti saluti, Stefano Costa
