Do White Peacocks Exist? The Photo Evidence.

Have you ever seen a white peacock? Never? Wondering where it is possible to see totally white peafowls? Well, if you are traveling through Northern Italy go visit the Borromean Islands and you'll have a chance to come across gorgeous blue peacocks as well as stunning white specimens.Here are a few pictures of white peacocks showing off their spectacular plumage in the luxuriant baroque gardens of Isola Bella, Lake Maggiore, Italy.

White peafowls are not albino peacocks, but a color variation of the more common Indian blue peafowl, so rare that some people believe that to see a white peacock brings good luck and even eternal happiness.

Located in the western arm of Lake Maggiore, between the lovely Italian towns of Stresa and Verbania, the small islands of Isola Madre, Isola Bella and Isola Dei Pescatori are a great destination for a romantic day trip from Milan or Turin.
