The passion for vintage cars
and the visit of lake Maggiore will be at the base of the 32nd edition
of Grand Prix Bordino: an event at the very top of slow tourism in
places, where history and nature intertwine.

Lago Maggiore, surrounded by
prealps and casket of unique jewels such as Borromee Islands, has inspired men
of letter, writers, musicians from all around Europe, who, between 800 and 900 chose
it for their journeys. Among the best known Stendhal, Byron Dumas senior,
Flobert, Dickens, Nietzsche, Dostoevskiy, Liszt and Wagner. They all appointed
Lago Maggiore as the most pleasant lake in the world.

We will go on an enchanting
cruise by night of the Borromee Islands
, living the magic atmosphere of the
lake from a privileged point of view.

Dinner will be in a typical
restaurant on Isola Bella, the most fashinating of all the islands.

We will visit Villa
Taranto in Pallanza
, considered one of the richest botanic garden in the
world with its thousands of species - eucalyptus, azalea, rhododendron,
magnolia, maple, camelia and dahlia, stretching over an area measuring 16

And then again the visit of
two other pearls set between the hills of northern Piedmont: lake Mergozzo
and lake Orta
, considered among the most romantic in Italy.
