Un viaggio temporale tra modelli di sostenibilità alimentare dall'Ottocento ai giorni nostri
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.
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.
Villa Carlotta Botanical Garden is open every day from 10am to 5pm. Tickets also include museum entry.
A must-see at this time of year, with camellias, azaleas and rhododendrons in full bloom. Use our resources to enhance your visit.
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.
