  • The villa and especially the garden definitely deserve the visit. It is easily accessible by ferries from all parts of Central lake Como. In the villa there is an interesting museum for its history. T...  more »
  • Pleasant garden, but in the second half of May all the azaleas were over. It would have been spectacular in April. House nice too but temp exhibition was unimpressive.  more »
  • The Villa Calotta itself is very elegant nd intereting, but the reason you would go to Villa Carlotta is to admire the gardens. Plants have been imported from all over the world and they grow beautifu...  more »

  • One of those 'must visit' places on Lake Como, and for good reason. The villa is pleasant, but it's the gardens that are the big draw. Manicured to perfection and full of different areas and species. It's just a wonderful way to while away a few hours. Entrance price is reasonable considering how lovely everything is.
  • Very nice! It was so relaxing walking through the gardens they were well managed. It was kids friendly too! Took our 6 and 2 year old and they enjoyed it as well as us adults. I would recommend a visit!
  • Beautifully keep garden with a large villa. Leisurely stroll. Not at all taxing. Would visit once only
  • We would like to have spent longer here but we came at the end of a very hot day. Gardens were beautiful. The views out over the lake spectacular and the villa looked great.
  • Impressive gardens, some great touch screens in the house to explain the historical aspects, very nice Lake facing cafe offering good value food. A lovely experience all round.
