  • A small island but known for its many restaurants. It doesn't take long to wander round it or take a stroll through some of the narrow passages. Like many we visited whilst the restaurants were open....  more

  • Beautiful small tourist island, many restaurants & shops, narrow alleys, small park.
  • Nice island. It was heavy rain when we went but still nice place. Expensive and some cafes are rubbish while charging high prices. Microwaved lasagne which was cold in the middle and beef ragu where the pasta had dried out and was inedible

Unlike Isola Bella and Isola Madre, the island has never belonged to the Borromeo family.

As the most northerly of the three principal Borromean Islands it is also known as Isola Superiore and, with a population of 25 in 2018, it is the only one to be inhabited all year round. Unlike Isola Bella and Isola Madre, the island has never belonged to the Borromeo family. The island is about 375 metres long by 100 metres wide. A narrow street running along its spine is joined by cobbled alleys to the promenade that encircles the island. The promenade is frequently flooded and the houses built against it are constructed to allow for this. The church of San Vittore (Victor the Moor) retains traces of an ancient chapel that was probably constructed for the monks of Scozzòla (an abbey of San Donato di Sesto Calende founded by Liutardo, bishop of Pavia, in the mid ninth century. The church was previously dedicated to S. Gangolfo (Gangulphus), whose veneration is linked with the Abbey of San Donato.
