Villa Olmo, Como
(4.2/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
Built in 1797 as a summer retreat for the aristocracy, and named for an elm that once stood at the heart of the gardens, Villa Olmo is now property of the municipality of Como. Neoclassical in style, the villa is only open during exhibitions, though the lakeside gardens are open to the public at all times. Enjoy a drink at the open-air bar in the garden, or relax on the lawns. Check online to see the schedule of events and exhibits. Only about 2 km (1.3 mi) from the heart of Como, it is an easy walk along the lake to get to the villa. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Villa Olmo by using our Como vacation trip planner.

  • Pedestrian, car-free, magnificent gardens and splendid Palladian villas. A must for anyone in oni season.

  • The villa is just a short walk away from the stadium area and along a small road along the Lake. The Park is partly overlooking Lake, dotted with statues and with a beautiful fountain in the Centre, and partly to the mountains, where you can admire the majestic trees. I did not visit the Interior of the villa, I still consider that it is an essential stop for visitors to Como, or even simply a place where you can go for a nice walk, you are tourists or locals.
