With springtime coming the wonderful villas of the Como Lake, that have been closed during wintertime – or at least have opened just some days – are ready to open their doors to public.
It is now the time to prepare to open our eyes and admire the beauty of the furniture, the perfumed gardens with their coloured flowers and rare trees, amazing views and romantic corners.
Let yourself be inspired by the culture and history, lose yourself in romantic corners of the gardens, admire the blooms, rare and exotic plants and discover the jewels of Como Lake.
