Gardens Como

Lake Como is famous for its villas with fantastic gardens: let's discover them together!

Gardens Como, unveil the province's green corners with our suggestions. Gardens in Lombardy are known for being lush and numerous.

This makes them perfect destinations for relaxing walks and engaging in cultural tourism.

Como boasts an unparalleled landscape embellished with fascinating lakeside villas, guarding blooming lawns and rare plant species. 

Just like those that can be found at the Villa Carlotta Botanic Garden, a small Eden in the Bellagio peninsula. It enthralls visitors with its citrus trees, multi-colored azaleas and tropical plants. The Melzi d'Eril are not very far from it. 

The mansions of Parravicino Sossnovsky, d'Este, Balbianello, Olmo and Erba are surrounded by breathtaking vegetation. That at the Rossini Art Site is an authentic open air museum, harboring contemporary artworks created by important artists such as Melotti, Munari and Pomodoro.

In order to admire the most beautiful gardens in Lombardy, head to the Minorprio Foundation Park: Magnolia Grandifloras, a centenary Lime tree and over 130 varieties of camellias, 70 dwarf conifers, hydrangeas and wisterias will leave you speechless.

Treat yourselves to a moment of beauty by visiting the gardens Como has to offer. Tourism in Como provides several options that are worth visiting.
