Favorite thing: Bellagio is just across the lake. You can see it very well from any location in Villa Carlotta and Tremezzo. The best views are from the top of Villa Carlotta gardens of course. Go there in the afternoon, when the sun is shining on Bellagio directly, that's when the light is at its best. In the morning Bellagio is in the shadow.
Favorite thing: This I took at Tremezzo, in front of Villa Carlotta, in a late November afternoon. There was nobody around, as it's the dead season, and as usual, they are performing works, but it was no less beautiful than in other seasons, and the sunset was so serene... There are many spots along the lake where you can enjoy a romantic sunset.
Places to reflect
Favorite thing: There are lots of benches all over Villa Carlotta botanitcal gardens, very suitable for relaxing, reflecting, or simply enjoying the beauty of the place. SOme are in the hidden corners, small plateaus just popping out from the exuberant vegetation, and some are on the wide open plain areas. Whatever you choose, you're guaranteed tranquility and an amazing view!
full moon nights
Favorite thing: In the nights of the full moon, walk out in Tremezzo at the lakeside at dusk, and enjoy the beautiful view of Bellagio on the other side on the moonlight, the glitter on the water and the serenity of the beautiful surroundings, and villa Carlotta behind you.
Favorite thing: There are several fountains in Villa Carlotta and in one of them you'll find pretty big turtles! Their space is quite limited, but they seemed quite happy with their home and people roaming around. They brought the heads out and looked curious!
Favorite thing: In front of the Villa Carlotta there is a small oval plateau under the trees with benches, facing the lake and ovrlooking Bellago on the other side. Sit there for a while, relax and enjoy the fresh breeze and spectacular view!
Front central garden
Favorite thing: This is the first thing you wll face when entering Villa Carlotta. It's not so big, but still big enough. There is a lovely view on it from one of the villa's balconies. It has a lovely fountain and a mini labyrinth.
Favorite thing: There is a part of Villa Carlotta gardens that is a jungle! A rainforest, or whatever, I'm not a botany expert, but it contains exotic exuberant plants and looks like Amazonia!
Favorite thing: Not only azaleas, plams, rhododendrons and bamboo are featuring in the gardens of Villa Carlotta. There are other exotic plants and flowers, trees... They all have a plate with a name under.
Other trees & Japanese garden
Favorite thing: There are many trees from all ofer the world in Villa carlota gardens, from Chile over Europe to Japan. One part of the tree garden is decorated in the Japanese style.
