Summer at Villa Carlotta

See you on Lake Como. The perfect time and place.


Open until 7.30pm. Last admission at 6.30pm. The museum closes at 7pm

With its magnificent botanical park and galleries of master artworks, Villa Carlotta welcomes you to Lake Como.

Here, in a natural basin, embraced by the lake and mountains, Nature and human ingenuity live together in perfect harmony. In the 1600s, the Marquis Giorgio Clerici had a splendid residence built in this area: the massive but understated Villa Carlotta is surrounded by an Italianate garden and looks out over the breath-taking Bellagio setting.

Scheduled exhibitions

Splendors of the eighteenth century on Lake Como: Villa Carlotta and the Marquis Clerici

Villa Carlotta once more explores its origins, this time with an exhibition revolving around three large Baroque paintings, restored for the occasion. The canvases are by some of the leading artists active in Lombardy at the end of the seventeenth century: Legnanino, Filippo Abbiati and Paolo Cazzaniga.
Opening times: 10am - 1pm, 2pm - 6pm

Artists, looms and weaves. From Leonardo to Maria Lai

22 June – 3 November 2019
