Escorted Rail Tours to Isola del Garda

Beautiful gardens sloping down to Lake Garda

Isola del Garda is the biggest island in Lake Garda. Dominated by an impressive neo-Gothic villa, it can be reached only by boat. The island is owned by the Cavazza family, but over the centuries it had various names which were nearly always linked to the different owners.

Isola del Garda is situated on the Brescian side of Lake Garda, a short distance from San Felice del Benaco. One of the island's main attractions is the extraordinary Venetian neo-Gothic style villa, designed by the architect Luigi Rovelli at the beginning of the 20th century. Below the villa, the terraces and Italian gardens slope down to the lake. The villa's gardens are rich in local and exotic plants, rare essences and unique flowers.

The island also has a small wood of pines and cypresses, acacias and lemon trees, magnolias and agaves. The Cavazza siblings (four brothers and three sisters) have opened Isola del Garda to tours, which helps them to afford restoration work on the villa and across the island.
