Villa Carlotta safeguards and promotes a unique historical, artistic and botanical heritage on Lake Como, making it available for all to experience.
Built at the end of the seventeenth century by the marquises Clerici of Milan, the villa tells the story of over three centuries of great collections, and each year also opens the gates of a fascinating botanical garden that draw thousands of visitors from all over the world.
The botanical garden of Villa Carlotta is a kaleidoscope of colors in every season. In these weeks, large patches of hydrangeas in bloom and all shades of green are starring, from the intense and exotic one of the Fern Valley to the brilliant one of the pre-Alpine meadows: summer has arrived in all its splendor.
Masterpieces by Canova, Hayez and Thorvaldsen await visitors in a setting of great elegance, which also makes the most of the private apartments and furniture of Princess Charlotte of Sachsen-Meiningen.
Games, walks, sensory stimulation, and carefully thought out services. Villa Carlotta has been working for years to welcome all families: take a look at our resources and plan for memories to keep in your heart and in your gaze.
