9Villa Carlotta: A Testament to Art and Botanical Majesty

Situated in Tremezzo, Villa Carlotta is renowned for its art collections and acres of botanical gardens.

Built at the end of the 17th century, the villa was a wedding gift to Carlotta of Nassau from her mother. The gardens are a flourish of colors in every season, with rhododendrons and azaleas in spring, followed by summer blooms, and subtle autumn hues. The museum inside houses works by Canova and Thorvaldsen, making Villa Carlotta a cultural pilgrimage for art and nature lovers.
