Must see · Garden · Art Museum
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.

  • We spent an afternoon going round both the house and gardens. Excellent value for money. What a lovely way to spend time, the house is magnificent and the gardens were in full bloom and so we'll kept well worth a visit . The cafe and shop are an added bonus. What an enjoyable few hours we had.
  • We spent nearly a full day here. Wonderful and varied gardens and an interesting museum/gallery. The olive grove was quiet and well worth a visit (and the many warnings of great peril unfounded). The cafe was also very good indeed and great value for Como.
  • An excellent day strolling around the grounds with beautiful views. Cafe served excellent lunches with wide range of food. The extended garden to the olive grove and heritage farm site are a great addition. An ideal and relaxing day out!
  • A beautiful botanic garden so huge! You will need more than an hour to visit and enjoy the place. So peaceful place. Love it!
  • The garden and view look very nice. The main exhibits are few nice sculptures and paintings. The video guide was rather boring and only narrated about few most impressive exhibits within half of the rooms. Nothing about rooms themselves. Also - nothing about models of machines on the 2nd floor.
