Milan, Lombardy, and the Lakes Travel Guide


The quaint town of Verbania is across the Gulf of Pallanza from its more touristy neighbor, Stresa. It is known for the Villa Taranto, which has magnificent botanical gardens. Verbania became a town in 1939, when two smaller towns, Intra and Pallanza, merged. With its majestic gardens and greenery, it is often called the Garden of Lake Maggiore.
