Located up the mountain from Stresa, at 800 meters altitude, the Alpine Garden can be reached by car by following the road that leads to the Mottarone peak or by taking the cableway from the Lido in Carciano to the intermediate stop. It was founded by Igino Ambrosini and Giuseppe Rossi in 1934 and it stretches out on about 4 hectares of land, enjoying one of the best views of the region. Above all, figuratively and literally, it is known for the species belonging to the alpine and subalpine zones of the Alps, of which over 1,000 are featured here, as well as some rare plants from China and Japan. The garden entrance is 300 meters from the intermediate stop of the cableway. There is a restaurant at the intermediate stop called Bar Villino Beniamino, and several eating choices atop Mottarone.
