4.7
#1 of 473 in Parks in Lombardy
Visit Villa Carlotta, built in 1690, to see a decorated house and botanical garden filled with fine art. Admire views of Lake Como as you wander through the garden among camellias, century-old cedars, a rock garden, rhododendrons, and a bamboo garden. Discover 19th-century sculptures, including pieces by Canova and Thorvaldsen. On the villa's first floor, see Hayez's "The Last Kiss of Romeo and Juliet" painting--one the collection's masterpieces. Princess Marianne of the Netherlands bought this villa for her daughter in the mid-18th century, and the second floor features furniture, pictures, and decorations from that period. The ancient greenhouse is now a cafe. Pick up an audio guides, or ask about guided tours.

  • Using the subscription of the museums of Lombardia we visit this villa which has a breathtaking view of Lake Como and a garden where you can spend the hours to be seen.

  • Really enjoyed myself here! The garden was very nice and lots of different flowers and trees. The villa itself had some nice sculptures and vistas over the lake.
  • The gardens are spectacular and diverse. A must see. The villa itself doesn't offer much but still quite interesting .
  • Nice botanical garden - if you are into botanical gardens. Villa itself is unremarkable. As anywhere on the shores of lake Como, parking is a hassle. Better take a tour - boat and bus tours are abundant.
  • This villa was beyond gorgeous.. neo classical architecture was spectacular... so many photo opportunities.. sadly, the day we were there it was +40 & just too hot to spend extensive time exploring the botanical gardens.. Pretty easy access via ferry ⛴ to & from Bellagio.. A wonderful 2 hours spent here..would recommend! 🇮🇹❤️💚
  • Beautiful monument to the local cultural heritage with a stunning neoclassical architecture and a vast botanical garden. The villa includes many pieces of art, mostly paintings and sculptures. The ticket is relatively cheap (about 15 to 20 euros and about 5 for school and university students). It will take you 2-3 hours for the garden to visit and see and about 1-1,5 for the villa.
