Lake Maggiore

Borromean Islands

           

This year we ventured into the great north, the discovery of Lake Maggiore. We sailed from the shore in Pallanza Archipelago Borromeo at a time, plowing the waters calm and arriving in exotic lands ...

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella 

Our landing Isola Bella (in honor of Isabella) is fascinating from the first moments.

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella 

The guns of the imposing Villa make us think that at the time of Borromei reviewers were not particularly welcome.

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella  

The building is impressive, bright and inside still echo echoes of old glories. Behind a ghost somewhere watching us, observes the travelers. What will he think of us? ...

In a room look a library worthy of a great library.

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella 

See beautiful corners of their two ancient globes. We watch them closely, are not like modern globes, the coasts are hand drawn, rough but accurate. There are no indications on the known world and the unexplored ... it tickles the imagination and arouses our curiosity. Reflect for a moment, are two spherical globes ...

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella 

Look closely at the library ... reads one of the volumes along the ribs: "Life Pontifical ... interesting ... shame that we can not browse ... be spoiled! ...

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella - Marionette Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella - Marionette 

There are some rooms set up with the puppet theater. The Marionette Theatre of Borromei is famous worldwide and we remain open-mouthed in front of the perfection of these tiny miniature puppets. We imagine the nights that must have animated stories that must have narrated. We imagine the smiles of children who participated in the ancient and solemn shows, the wonder of the great, the whispers of the room ... applause! ...

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella - Marionette Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella - Marionette 

In several ancient shrines are rebuilt sets. In a corner, above, we see a whale's belly and into a prince ... Collodi that took some inspiration from the stories of the Marionette Theatre Borromei? ...

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella 

Our visit continues inside the halls in the shape of sea cave ... fascinating! ...

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee 

Even more fascinating are the outdoor gardens! ...

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Pavone bianco  Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Pavone bianco   

Not just fascinating architecture and botanical ... even the animals! ... Looking for some quiet walks, indifferent, beautiful white peacocks. Gifts in behavior, we observe how indifferent.

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Pavone bianco   

I approach ... I should not do ... but the temptation is too strong! ...

=^.^=

Ultimately I am a Cat! ...

The peacock does not move even a feather! ... It seems accustomed to tourists and even annoyed, just indifferent.

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella - giardini Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella - giardini  

Walk through the garden much as they did in the past Borremea family members, we look around, enjoying the breeze and the scent of the lake that surrounds us.

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella - giardini  

Ancient statues watch the skyline. Their profiles evoke epic adventures.

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella - giardini Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella - giardini  

We continue our walk, the day is beautiful and the contrast between the colorful flowers, green park and the blue sky we relax.

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella - giardini Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella - giardini  

The whole island seems to be a beautiful sailing ship anchored in Lake Maggiore, shimmering, dressed up, with his warriors lined up and looking around armed.

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella - giardini  

A cleverly worked a hedge Bow looks like a green satin embroidered on a blue background.

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella - giardini Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella - giardini  

A short stop refreshing.

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella - pavone bianco Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella - pavone bianco 

A white peacock watching us from above a wall ... he turns and goes away ... salt between the branches of an old tree, watching us.

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella - giardini  

Kidnapped, I come from a hedge hedgehog green embroidered.

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella - giardini Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Isola Bella - Ninfee 

The statues are made fun of me ... maybe even the ghost ride looking as I observe the wonder of the park with his mouth open! ...

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Maschere  

Too bad the tour is over ... adventures but certainly not end here.

In a corner of a stall I see a mask-shaped Cat ... I like it ... Too bad, too expensive, I just a photograph! ...

 Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo - Isolotto 

We take the ferry route and find a tiny island, it seems that of Robinson Crusoe.

We'd like us to a stop but is not expected! ...

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Traghetto fantasma

A little curiosity ... we approached the rudder control of the ferry and ... mystery ... This ferry is driven by a ghost ...

Brrrrrr ....

It's the same ghost that is accompanying us throughout our adventure? ...
I salute you and ... composedly ... There we sat ... confident !....

  Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo - Isola dei Pescatori

just landed immediately encounter fishing nets well arranged and hung from a tree. We are truly the Isle Fishermen! ...

 Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo - Isola dei Pescatori Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo - Isola dei Pescatori  

We look around the island seems to have, oddly, the shape of a huge fish ... looks like a leafy square in the head of a huge whale ... it is one that has eaten the prince of puppet theater? ... In one corner we meet a friendly Pirate Cat! ... The infamous Pirate Cat Island Fishermen. You caress snoring pleased.

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Traghetto

The Fisherman's Island is really fascinating and worth a quick visit our historical sketch of me in my personal travel diary.

 Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo - Isola Madre  

In the distance the last of the Borromean Islands, or sooner if you prefer: the Isola Madre ...

 Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo - Isola Madre  

The ferry dock is beautiful seems to have arrived within a framework of flowers.

 Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo - Isola Madre Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo - Isola Madre  

An avenue runs along the island and leads us to the botanical garden.

 Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo - Isola Madre Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo - Isola Madre  

Along the route crossed a species of pheasant or peacock ... we do not know which race belongs to the bird, known only looking at us as we are so curious, we approach. It 's a very colorful and beautiful specimen.

 Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo 

The park is shaded, quiet and fun to discover. There are a thousand little places to explore.

An old oak tree hinder us the path, wander ... I peekaboo from behind a tree after me and my brother, we see something moving stealthily in the vegetation, a white peacock moves away slowly from us because with our laughter we disturbed.

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Teatrino delle Marionette Borromee Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Teatrino delle Marionette Borromee 

We enter the Villa Isola Madre, there are also exhibited some beautiful miniature puppets in the past have animated fantasy stories and gave great emotions to the ancient audience.

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Teatrino delle Marionette Borromee 

I spell to observe the details of Puppets are very accurate and imaginative.

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Teatrino delle Marionette Borromee 

Inside a glass case exposed the strange instruments ... My father tells me that it is sulfur and most likely those tools needed to make special effects, or set fire which was burning sulfur, creating intense light and immediately followed by a thick acrid smoke smell.

The sensation experienced by viewers must have been very intense and ... unexpected! ...

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Teatrino delle Marionette Borromee Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Teatrino delle Marionette Borromee 

See within a school represented in the manuscripts of the adventures of puppet theater Borromei! ... Read: "The Fata Morgana ... must be a beautiful story! ... Then again "Steam Boat" ... to have inspired the title of the famous publishing house? ...

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Teatrino delle Marionette Borromee  

There are many manuscripts that tell the adventures of Harlequin ... fascinating! ...

Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Teatrino delle Marionette Borromee Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee - Teatrino delle Marionette Borromee 

The caskets are continuing and show us other puppets. Our curiosity increases and we continue to imagine those nights when the shows were staged, the Borromeo family waiting to attend the big night, guests, patrons ... Preparations ... ciangottano laughing children and adults seeking to maintain a sober demeanor ...

 Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo 

We leave the house still thinking about the adventures of Harlequin and the Fata Morgana .... two stone lions observed at the end of the double staircase ... growl but no bite ...

 Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo 

At the end of a magnificent double staircase of stone pond filled with lilies .. Brother also saw two frogs and would like to enter catturale! ... Better not! ...

Around us the Lago Maggiore sits quietly and shimmers.

 Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo 

Avenues are full of colorful flowers and we take the opportunity to retire to their company.

 Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo 

There are Lotuses high and noisy boat passing near the coast of the island, immortalized in a photo thinking of him driving, and I wonder why it has moved to make much noise in going ...

 Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo - Isola Madre Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo - Isola Madre 

A woman walks along the street, taking cover under her umbrella ... After a moment we see no more death. Check the photo that we have done, yet it was real, maybe a little fuzzy but real. That was a ghost? ...

Another peacock (or perhaps a pheasant .. we are not sure) is watching us, just does not seem to be interested in our presence.

 Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo - Isola Madre 

Sin ... even this adventure is over ... we leave the house ...
