Isola del Garda reviews
Very unfortunate, but we came there to see the palace and not the garden. The guide was talking only about the flower names and how known they are in Italy. This information was very useless for us... more »
We took a boat from Porto di Torchio to Isola del Garda and then had an extremely informative and interesting guided tour in English (German and Italian available) around the grounds and palace... more »

Isola del Garda, hosting Villa Borghese Cavazza, is a fairytale island with a breathtaking Venetian neogothic Villa; Privately owned by the Cavazza family the Villa is open to visits and hosts many events/weddings; The 1894 luxurious palace, the Italian symmetric gardens, quay and park come from the mind of the duke Gaetano De Ferrari and his noble Russian wife Maria Sergeevna Annenkova; ~2hrs Tourist visit comes in a bundle with the boat transfer from the main Garda lake cities (e.g. From Sirmione return ticket 38€ Adults, 22€ Kids) and a welcome drink in the main terrace overlooking the majestic green/blue waters of the lake; Furthermore the tour guide will be a member of the Cavazza family, in my case was the extremely kind, educated and professional Alberta Cavazza; The island is so beautiful you cannot believe that it is true; I left my heart there as one of the most beautiful places ever seen and I dream to marry in this wonderful location; Tip: Check the video "Lake Garda Wedding Videography | Lorna & Trevor" on VIMEO to experience how a wedding would be there;
Really well kept island, humble owner, and great family and building history to listen to from its own family member! The tour includes light refreshments too. Wear sandals so you can feel the fresh and clean lake water. And hey visitors please do not litter! The place is too gorgeous to be ruined with piles of garbage
Most amazing place with fantastic gardens but must be pre-arranged since it's privately owned.
Es war ein schöner Ausflug zur Isola del Garda. Die Führung war sehr nett und nach Sprache der Gäste aufgeteilt. Die kleine Erfrischung auf der Terrasse war sehr angenehm und man hätte einen tollen Blick aufs Festland. Die Dame die unsere Führung geleitet hat, war sehr nett und konnte alle Fragen beantworten. Empfehlenswert wenn natürlich auch nicht ganz preiswert mit 38€/Person, aber ich würde es wieder buchen.
