Lago Maggiore and Isola Bella

This is a great video of a beautiful garden I was able to visit a few years ago.  Isola Bella was and is a private home in Lago Maggiore of the lakes region of Italy.  This garden was begun over 700 years ago and is still in the same family today.  This is an extremely interesting place to garden due to the temperate micro climate that is produced from the incredibly high and steep Alps that surround them.  When I was there we could still see snow capped peaks in the middle of July while standing next to Palms.  It was amazing.  The main part in this video on the garden is towards the end but the whole thing is beautiful even if it is a little bit cheesy at times.  Enjoy
