Art and Nature

See you on Lake Como on 6-7-8 December!


6-7-8 December: open until 5pm. Last admission at 4pm. The museum closes at 4.30pm

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.
