The islands of Lago Maggiore

After enjoying the gardens and home at Isola Madre we hop back on the ferry.

Image

Then over to the cute and colorful Isola Pescatori (Fisherman’s Island) for a delicious lunch.

Image

Image

Image

Then a quick jaunt over to Isola Bella…

Image

Where we toured the home and gardens of the Borromeo family…

Image

Image

The home has an amazing grotto…

A gorgeous attention seeking white peacock was strutting his stuff on one of the lawns…

Another ferry ride takes us to the Monastery of Santa Caterina del Sasso.

Image

The monastery is built into the cliffside so it is most easily accessed by boat.

Sierra and Carrie checking out the view!

Some of the frescoes…

Super old grape and olive press.

Cannot remember the name of the guy below, but that is an actual corpse, and it was so creepy!
