Excursion to Brissago Islands



Boat trip, visit of the botanical garden, Mediterranean dinner

The Brissago Islands date back to the Roman time (vestiges of that time have been found on the islands) but became particularly famous thanks to the fascinating Russian Baroness Antoinette St. Léger who owned the island (1885 – 1927) and launched an intense cultural activity. At the same time she started what has become a unique botanical garden in Switzerland (today the property of the Canton Ticino) with 1500 plant species both indigeneous and from sub-tropical zones.
