Villa Taranto will reopen March 15, 2017, and will close its season on November 1, 2017. Get more information on the website.
Rounding out the openings, Parco Pallavicino gardens and zoo will open March 14, 2017 and will remain open until 31 October, 2017. Hours are 9 am until 7:00 pm (last entry at 4:00 pm). Entry price is 9.50 euro per adult and 6.50 for children from 3 to 12 years.
Along with these openings, the frequency of the Lago Navigazione ferries will increase, to better accommodate visitors. On April 9, 2017 the summer schedule will commence, increasing the frequency even more, and including the "Lago Maggiore Express" circular tour that combines a long, leisurely boat ride with the train ride through the Italian and Swiss Alps.
