  • The island was owned by monks and emperors, but according to the story, played by one of the same family owning Cavazza, have visited the island, and beyond, St. Francis of Assisi, Saint Anthony of Padova and in 1304, according to tradition, he hosted Dante Alighieri, who would remember the place in the divine In 1429 he reached san Bernardino of Siena and in 1798 , the now venerable monastery was finally suppressed by Napoleon Bonaparte. After passing to the State, the property changed in the following years many hosts and underwent various transformations including an Italianate garden, with elaborate drawings of Hedges and bushes. In 1927 on the death of Prince Scipione Borghese, the island was inherited by his daughter Livia, wife of Count Alessandro Cavazza bolognese. His great-grandchildren, that still inhabit continued into the Park and the conservation of the building, since 2002 have opened the island to sightseeing and just one of them made as a guide. The villa is very nice as well as the garden. Pity that the interiors are almost all closed, but it is logical as privataAvendo warned that we were with our dog, we absolutely loved that there are met while taking away their Maremma. At the end of the visit, a small aperitif and a great bruschetta topped with local oil

  • The private island, which was only made available to the public in recent years is worth a visit in any case. For 2 people, we have paid €68 from Bardolino. Just thought this was too expensive, but the impression has completely compensated me for the price. After a short introduction by the very nice directors there were oil and wine grown with olives and other small appetizers first. The lead lasted then 1.5 hours even through the building and the great gardens and for a walk until you reach exit of the vessel was again time for less than an hour. All in all not too expensive, but possibly worth visiting.

  • Most amazing place with fantastic gardens but must be pre-arranged since it's privately owned.
  • Garda Island, or also called Island of Auditors (Cavazza family), is a blend of history and culture, one of the Italian historic houses. The island is open to the public through guided tours, the rooms are filled with paintings, books, objects that represent the historical evolution of tools, furniture and knickknacks. The grounds are always perfectly manicured. Recommended visit at all.

  • Very great, it feels really noble. Garden is beautiful. Guided tour of the castle is ok. Then snack with firsts (olive oil)... for a star deduction. Price is okey, it is worthwhile in any case.

  • Beautiful island. Good guides in English, Italian and German. Interesting. Well worth the effort. Magnificent view of the Lake from the balcony where local wine and olive oil and other snacks are offered. FIK is in order!
