How to enjoy Lake Como
Explore Lake Como in the most Dolce Vita way. Did you know that Lake Como has been a popular retreat for aristocrats and the wealthy since Roman times? No wonder as it is considered to be one of the most beautiful places in the region of Lombardy. And it is, until nowadays, that Lake Como is a glamorous and prestigious destination with many artistic and cultural gems. The greatest testimony of this importance are the historic villas that decorate its coasts. Nowadays, thanks to them, it is possible to travel in time and relive the lives of historical and contemporary figures.
The villas. In Como city you can admire Villa Olmo, an imposing neoclassical villa, dating back to 1782 and which has been the historic mansion of Napoleon. Continuing northwards, you might have a sneak peek of Villa d’Este, one of the most famous 5-star hotels on the lake and today the site of the famous Concours d’Élégance famous for its classic cars. Just before Tremezzo, in the small town of Lenno, stands Villa Balbianello where some scenes of “Star Wars: Episode II” and “007 Casino Royale” were shot.
The owners and guests of these villas have one thing in common: all of them have been on Lake Como not only to see its natural beauty, but to experience the territory and the so-called Italian Dolce Vita.
