Opening of Villa Carlotta - Season 2020

Friday 20th March 2020 reopens to the public for the 2020 season Villa Carlotta, one of the most precious jewels of Tremezzina and Lake Como.

Villa Carlotta is a place of rare beauty, located in a panoramic position on the shore of Lake Como, facing a breathtaking scenery on the Grigne and the village of Bellagio. Famous both for the arts preserved inside, and for the magnificent botanical park of 70,000 square meters, which boasts an amazing spring flowering of rhododendrons and azaleas in over 150 varieties.

Also this year Villa Carlotta promises visitors a unique experience between art and nature, in a succession of activities for families and schools, temporary exhibitions, thematic visits, concerts, workshops and tastings.
