The main attraction of villa Carlotta is the exceptional gardens. Imbued with over 500 different species of exotic plants from all over the world... one feels like they are strolling through eden. A gardeners paradise and definitely a place for lover of botany. The views of lake como from the gardens are simply breathtaking. Also to look out for would... More

The gardens are amazing, everyone who is in the area should go and see for themselves, the Villa is also very beautiful and right on the edge of Lake Como

Fabulous gardens! Best we have seen in a long time. Quite extensive, so allow plenty of time to wander around. Wish that we had been here when the azaleas were flowering. That would have been a stunning sight. The villa was interesting, but you go here for the gardens

Nice views from the top of the villa but otherwise not impresssed. Just empty rooms within the villa not worth the entrance fee.

Wow Villa Carlotta is such a beautiful place to visit. The Villa itself is amazing, and you can walk all around it to view different art works, but for me the gardens were the gem! The gardens are beautiful and you should allow yourself plenty of time to stroll around. So well maintained and well worth the visit!

In my opinion one of the most beautiful villas on the Como lake, not too many people seem to visit it, but I think it is worth the trip, not only beacause the villa is nicely restored, but also because of the beautiful romantic garden. The villa is well kept and has some artwork from Canova, Hayez and Thorvaldsen. Interesting... More

Nice place to have a walk and spend some time in a place with no traffic. To find a parking slot might be challencing, but I recommend to be patient. The garden is worth of waiting. The garden itself is large. During your walk you can easily feel the history and enjoy the colourful park. The villa is nice, but... More
