Tremezzo is a wonderful small town at the Lake Como. Often called a place of eternal spring, Tremezzo occupied the western coast of Lake Como. From the 18th century many villas and buildings were built in Tremezzo. Tremezzo represented a center of both Italian and European bourgeois as well, including many noble French, Dutch and Austrian families who had a desire to build holiday villas for their families.
Tremezzo is also considered the richest Baroque village in Italy, with its numerous villas, cathedrals and buildings which interior and exterior decorations are truly breathtaking.
Here visitors may visit famous Villa Carlotta. It is one of the most beautiful and one of 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 a spacious garden in pure Italian style. As the time was passing by, the villa changed hands in between various owners and each one of them contributed in additional decorations of Villa Carlotta. Villa holds sculptures of famous artists Antonio Canova and paintings of Francesco Hayez. Gardens of Villa Carlotta cover the total surface of 8 ha.
