Tremezzo Things to Do

  • Walk along the lakeside

    The short walk from Cadenabbia to Tremezzo and back is quite pleasant, and on the lakeside, is completely paved. I'd found heading, out of my hotel, in the opposite direction involved a few stretches where there was no pavement and 'blind corners' where I couldn't see approaching traffic. It is a busy road!I'd spotted metal discs (pic 2) at...

  • The Gardens of the Villa Carlotta

    Guidebooks recommend visiting the gardens of the Villa Carlotta in spring, but my wife and I can attest to its autumnal beauty as well. Its mountainside setting and panoramic views of Lake Como are what set these gardens apart from other gardens visited in the past. Open April through OctoberSee more of my photos from the villa and gardens in a...

  • Villa Carlotta

    The Villa Carlotta and its gardens (covered in separate tip) were a short, easy walk from our lodging in Cadenabbia. We had arrived at Lake Como on the previous day in a steady downpour, but the day of our visit to the villa was glorious, great for photography and clear views of the lake and surrounding mountains.The villa was built in the late...

The copies exist...

    The villa inside is a typical wealthy family villa, nice furniture, rooms for each occasion, fantastic views from the windows and balconies, statues... It's made with a taste, and not overcrowded like baroque villas (that I completely dislike!)There are three floors if I remember well, and there is a lift, and spiral stairs. I added several photos...

  • Villa Carlotta gardens

    The gardens of Villa Carlotta are the most famous in the area, and on the lake most definitely so. It's full of corners to hide and romance :)), as it's like a labyrinth, with lots of passages, trails and all in flowers. There are wonderful viewpoints along the way, with a sight on the lake, and Bellagio on the other side.

  • Villa Carlotta

    Of course, the first and most wanted, and perhaps the only :)) must see in Tremezzo is Villa Carlotta. It's definitely the most famous villa on the lake Como and the most beautiful one. The road passes just in front of it, and its entrance starts already from the lake, pompous stairs! Later leading to the big front yard with fountains and...

  • Familiar Flowers Beautifully Presented

    Carol is a wonderful and knowledgeable gardener and as such was looking forward to experiencing the local garden plantings. Driving along the main roads we routinely saw palms and oleander which would never make it in our garden. When we roamed about the gardens at Villa Carlotta, however, a different picture developed.Sure there was plenty of...

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    All the food here was freshly cooked to order and absolutely wonderful. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners Lorenzo and Franca and they even opened early for us on a Sunday morning so that we could have a spectacular smoked salmon and scrambled egg breakfast! The star dish has to be the Trout - pan fried, served with saute potatoes and vegetables. One of my friend's was so impressed with this dish that she chose it four nights in a row!!

    Favorite Dish: The Trout (see above) but also the melt in the mouth steaks and the melon and parma ham.
