    Camellias & C.

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the area around Lago Maggiore the soil is particularly rich in acidic sediments, originated from the granite of the surrounding mountains. This type of soil is ideal for the acidophilus plants: azaleas, camellias and rhododendrons. This explains why these flowers are predominant in the gardens of this part of Italy.
    There are also botanical exhibitions and festivals dedicated to flowers, among them the exhibition of rhododendrons at Villa Taranto (Verbania) and the exhibition of camellias in Cannero, taking place every year in March.

    At Isola Bella there is this lovely restaurant Elvezia run by a wonderful family, and they serve home made food. The specialty of the house is typical Italian pasta, the most famous and best types served in a mix in a huge portion! There were lasagne, tortellini with mushrooms and tagliatelle with panna and something else, I can't remember... YUMMY!!!
