Palazzo Borromeo on the island of Bella is different from the European palaces that are often seen. The Bologo Palace seems to have moved the ocean into the palace. The sky-blue interior colors, the wall decoration made of sea stones, the cobbled floors, and even the ornaments are all related to the ocean. Living on the island in the lake, people have the illusion of being in the sea. The ground floor of the palace is like a cave-like room. The ceiling and walls are decorated with shells and pebbles in the form of mosaics. The details are designed to avoid the heat of summer. It is very ingenious. Come out of the magnificent Borromeo Palace and come to the small courtyard outside. The sun is shining, and this piece of green shadow is more beautiful and dazzling. Walking along, maybe you can open the peacock in the garden. Baroque gardens on the island, flowers and sculptures on the rigorous and gorgeous 10-story platform, stacked on top of each other, the top of the pyramid is a huge sculpture of lovers sitting on the back of the unicorn.

If Isola Bella is a symbol of wealthy and flamboyant, then Isola dei Pescatori is the embodiment of civilians and simple labor. There are many typical fishermen's houses on the island (so the island is also called Fisherman's Island) and there is a church built in the 15th century. There are various types of boats moored around the island. There are modern motorboats and old fishing boats. You can still see wooden frames for drying and drying fish, brackets for fishing nets and other fishing gear. It is also Hemingways favorite refuge. Pescatoroli is very small and can be visited for a week in a 20-minute walk but the alleys are very dense and full of petty-bourgeois villas and restaurants. Although not as good as the previous two islands, it has been listed as a business district. Many people choose to settle down here to taste the local cuisine, or buy a souvenir to take home. When you are tired, sit at the lakeside cafe and order a cup of Italian coffee, back against the white peaks, facing the deep blue lake, watching the waterfowl vacate and enjoy life quietly, even if you dont do anything, Walking around with your heart is also very pleasant.

Leaving the lively Rome, Florence, Milan, and visiting the most romantic island of Italy, Bella Island, which is rare among tourists, is a must-see place for my trip to Italy. Looking into the distance, the mountains in the distance are stacked, and the lake of Maggiore is connected with a lake and mountains. The water on the lake is rippled, and the golden light in the sunlight is intoxicating. The natural beauty of the mountain lake, accompanied by the flowers and plants on the island, blowing the wind on the lake, warm and hustle and bustle, this moment, seems to be unable to move, and quietly enjoy the wonderful sanctuary of this paradise. The lake of Lake Maggiore is clear, it is like a charming blue-yellow girl, quietly lying in the green mountains, not arrogant and graceful. Whether using a cell phone or a camera or a brush, people always want to record the beauty here in a variety of ways.
