1Tremezzo, Lombardy

A chance to sleep at the Grand Hotel Tremezzo is reason enough to make a detour from Milan—the glamorous grand dame built in 1910 is famed for its Art Nouveau architecture, lakefront suites named after famous guests like Greta Garbo, and extremely ‘grammable floating pool.

While you’re here, visit the nearby Villa Carlotta, an aristocratic palazzo now open to the public where you can admire Neoclassical sculptures.
