Welcome to Italy in Photos, where we invite you to immerse yourself in the enchanting world of Verbania: – Verbania is a beautiful town in the Piedmont region of northwest Italy, located on the shore of Lake Maggiore. It is the capital and the most populous municipality of the province of Verbano-Cusio-Ossola¹. Verbania is a popular tourist destination, thanks to its stunning scenery, rich history, and cultural attractions. One of the main attractions of Verbania is the Villa Taranto, a 19th-century villa surrounded by a magnificent botanical garden that covers 16 hectares and hosts more than 20,000 species of plants from around the world². The garden was created by a Scottish nobleman, Neil McEacharn, who bought the villa in 1931 and devoted his life to transforming it into a paradise of flora and fauna. Another highlight of Verbania is the Basilica of San Vittore, a baroque church that dates to the 18th century and features a dome and a bell tower that dominate the skyline of the town. The basilica contains several artworks from the 15th and 16th centuries, as well as a crypt with ancient Roman remains. Verbania is also a great base for exploring the Borromean Islands, three charming islands in Lake Maggiore that are famous for their elegant villas, picturesque villages, and enchanting gardens. The islands can be reached by ferry from Verbania’s port, where you can also find many restaurants, cafes, and shops. Verbania is a town that offers something for everyone: nature lovers, history buffs, art enthusiasts, and foodies. It is a place where you can relax, enjoy, and discover the beauty and charm of Lake Maggiore. If you are looking for a destination that combines culture, nature, and elegance, Verbania is the perfect choice for you
