The island is located on the Brescian side of Lake Garda, not far from the shores of San Felice del Benaco.
Today it owes its charm, above all, to the extraordinary Venetian neo-Gothic style villa, designed by the architect Luigi Rovelli in the early 1900s; an imposing harmonic construction, rich in surprising architectural details.
It boasts a beautiful eighteenth-century canvas by Carlo Carloni.
At its feet, terraces and Italian gardens slope down to the lake. All around the vegetation is luxuriant and intact, rich in local and exotic plants, rare essences and unique flowers.
We organize guided tours with departures from various ports of the lake on different days of the week. The excursion includes a guided tour in Italian, English and German of the gardens and part of the villa by one of our guides, a welcome drink with a local wine and a tasting of our DOP Garda Bresciano olive oil.
It is necessary to book the visit, we strongly recommend buying the ticket directly from our website, there are special prices online, especially for those traveling with children.
It is advisable to book by the day before the chosen tour, in high season even three days beforehand; there are not departures from all ports every day, so it is better to plan ahead.
It is not possible to visit the island without a guided tour.
The visit lasts between 2 and 2 1/2 hours on the island. The transfer to the island takes between 15 and 40 minutes each way depending on the departure port.

For some years now, Isola del Garda has created a project for children to raise awareness of environmental education and to teach them the history and way of life of this region, that is unrivalled for its naturalistic and cultural richness.
Isola del Garda is a place of incomparable beauty, rich in history and landscapes, surrounded by the magical, crystal clear waters of the lake.
This strip of land over the centuries has welcomed characters such as San Francesco d'Assisi, Sant'Antonio da Padova and Dante Alighieri and has been the scene of fascinating events as a refuge for pirates, as a hermitage for monks in prayer and as the headquarters of a Savoy garrison at the dawn of the Kingdom of Italy.
Today it is home to an important neo-Gothic Venetian style villa built in the nineteenth century and is adorned with Italian and English hanging gardens and a centuries-old park that welcomes essences from the most remote corners of the globe.
Isola del Garda puts at your disposal competent guides who will share with you of the history of this place and accompany you in discovering the most exclusive views of the lake seen from an unique perspective.
The park on the island offers a real enchanted forest in which children can enjoy an experience completely immersed in nature. They will have the opportunity to see, touch and discover new colors and scents that will remain etched in their memories. Children are free to wander around the park, allowing them to discover small paths and get lost in complete safety.
