Admire views of Lake Como as you wander through the garden among camellias, century-old cedars, a rock garden, rhododendrons, and a bamboo garden. Discover 19th-century sculptures, including pieces by Canova and Thorvaldsen. On the villa's first floor, see Hayez's "The Last Kiss of Romeo and Juliet" painting--one the collection's masterpieces.

We spent an afternoon going round both the house and gardens. Excellent value for money. What a lovely way to spend time, the house is magnificent and the gardens were in full bloom and so we'll kept well worth a visit . The cafe and shop are an added bonus. What an enjoyable few hours we had.
We spent nearly a full day here. Wonderful and varied gardens and an interesting museum/gallery. The olive grove was quiet and well worth a visit (and the many warnings of great peril unfounded). The cafe was also very good indeed and great value for Como.
