Explosion of colours at Lake Como
Walking along the lake promenade in Colico you can feel that spring is in the air: flowers are blooming, blossom is on the trees, the sun is shining and Easter is coming.
March is also an important month for the enchanting villas on Lake Como that open to public, where you can admire beautiful gardens, flowerbeds, fountains, sculptures all surrounded by the magic and romantic scenery of the lake.
Villa del Balbianello opened on 11th March. It’s considered one of the most romantic and beautiful residences of Lake Como, located on the tip of a steep promontory overlooking Lake Como, almost opposite Bellagio. Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo has already opened too, a unique place of rare beauty, where natural masterpieces and incredible works live together in perfect harmony into over 70000 square metres of gardens and museums.
Last weekend it was Villa Melzi’s turn in Bellagio opening on 25th March. The actual villa is not open to the public but you can experience a fascinating walk in the gardens and enjoy the perfect balance between architecture and natural beauty.
With the arrival of spring, the boats of the Navigazione Laghi return to their full sailing routes from Como to Bellagio. Buy a round way ticket and stop by in Bellagio, Lenno and Tremezzo in order to visit the villas of Melzi, Serbelloni, Balbianello and Carlotta.
Enjoy the peace of spring and spend unforgettable moments at the beginning of the season when flowers are in full bloom and you can appreciate the ‘Mediterranean’ feel of the area, with palm trees, olive and citrus trees.
