  • We have been to a couple of days ago and I was particularly impressed by the dolls of all kinds is from anywhere in the world within the Castle (the dolls are part of the collection of the Borromeo family). Of course the Castle does its part, very nice and impressive with many paintings depicting the Borromeo. To visit!!

  • We reached the fortress of Angera with private coach (with a group of 47 people) having previously booked the Guide for a visit to the historic rooms. We were accompanied by a lady very prepared and very pleasant to listen to the many interesting news that sent us about the history of this stately home. We went on a visit to the doll and Toy Museum which has fascinated young and old: it really is an excellent accomplishment, full of curiosity and valuable objects. The picturesque Park in the medieval garden, currently still a bit bare since the start of spring, but it definitely holds corners wonderfully blossomed over the next few months. It is however well laid out in its different botanical areas (perhaps some more explanatory cards are desirable for plants that lack). Finally we were cordially greeted in the cafeteria of the fortress that offers sweet and savoury snacks and relax in a nice and clean. On all dominates the enchanting view of the Lake and its shores. A morning very well that left everyone satisfied.
