  • An exceptional situation in the face of Bardolino. A beautiful pool, a small stream, many trees for fresh but nothing to do with the gardens of the Lake Maggiore Borromeo Islands. Villa Carlotta is beautiful and in fact unavoidable on Lake Como. Floors, ceilings, paintings, sculptures make a House on 3 levels to visit again. Entry for 2 adults and a child of less than 18 years old: €20, it is not excessive.

  • Probably one of the most famous attractions on Lake Como and well visited. Buses way arrive the hosts rolled on. We have to go therefore decide only in the late afternoon there. I think that was a good decision. In the September 2017, we were at Lake Como and have visited the Villa / the garden. The Villa is chic and various sculptures and paintings are exhibited – this is but not as mine. The views of the Lake towards Bellagio is always cool. What thrilled me is the huge garden. There, you can walk a few kilometres and spend lots of time. The beauty is that you may remain to the twilight in the garden. Ideal to shoot beautiful pictures alone. The diversity of plants at all I do not describe - the hammer. We want to come back - but then when everything blooms - probably in may or so. Is definitely worth its entry and gardens like to look at must have been here before. Time, I would plan for so 2 to 4 hours and select run-friendly shoes.

  • "Villa Carlotta" is a very beautiful Palace. This really deserves to visit. In addition, the Botanical Park is superb, large (7 hectares) and diversity at the level of the vegetation. Very nice view on the 2nd floor on Lake Como.

  • Lovely gardens and art on display inside, set in beautiful surroundings. Very interesting to read about the history of the place and how it's evolved through the hundreds of years. Well with a visit!
  • A very nicely maintained villa with extravagant gardens and an affordable entrance price. The gardens were expansive with different types mingling together. The villa was created into a museum with the different rooms having the furniture that they used to have. A very nice villa.
  • A very nice place. Worth the visit. Beautiful gardens
  • Great place on Lake Comp for English tea (Yorkshire Tea) the scones are wonderful with a fantastic view of the lake
  • It should be very nice in good weather. In rain feeling is not so good, but anyway even villa itself is amazing.
