  • Amazing place - definitely a must-see when you are in the Lake Como area. Ignore the unfriendly eldery lady at the check-in counter - this seems to fllow a weird pattern here in Italy.

  • The gardens are beautiful but be prepared for stairs and inclines. There is not much to see in the villa itself. A nice visit, but if you can’t fit it in, I wouldn’t stress over it.

  • Brilliant place to visit. They have two routes around the lovely gardens, one not so steep, and one fairly steep. But it was worth it for the views of Lake Como. They have a reasonable cafe, inside and out, with again lovely views. The villa(the museum) was ok
  • We loved this place! The garden was amazing with different species from all over the world. So cool that they are able to thrive in Italy due to the microclimates around Lake Como. The villa had beautiful views of the lake and offered many opportunities for great photos. The café inside had a decent selection of food and drinks, although slightly overpriced.
