Villa Olmo, Como

(4.2/5 based on 440+ 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.

  • Beautiful neoclassical style villa overlooking Lake Como. Witness of the aristocratic families of the 800 has a magnificent park where you can enjoy a magnificent view of the Lake. Home to major exhibitions and conferences.
