Villa Carlotta is one of the most beautiful and the most visited villas on Lake Como. Villa dates back to the 17th century when it was constructed in Baroque style by Marchese Giorgio Clerici. Giorgio’s wish was to surround this magnificent villa by an spacious garden in a pure Italian style. As the time was passing by, the villa changed various owners and each one of them contributed in additional decorations of Villa Carlotta. The villa possesses sculptures by a famous artist Antonio Canova and paintings by Francesco Hayez.
Gardens cover the total surface of 8ha. Visitors can notice different gardening styles that are presented in these gardens, from classic Italian style to English gardens. Visitors can see an rhododendron forest, the camellias and azaleas which make this park a true botanical garden.
