Lake Como Museums and Villas
As you can imagine, there are a lot of museums, palaces and gardens around Lake Como. The Villas were the homes and playgrounds of the rich and famous, initially from Italy and Europe and now the International jet set, these villas with their gardens have had hundreds of years to flourish and develop.

If you search this site you will find a number of villas and palaces in the attractions section and this is constantly being updated. One of the issues however is to constantly maintain certain elements of this. We have therefore produced a page rich in information and with links to the relevant places. These links also include Museums and various other places of interest. Very important is opening and closing times, for this we have a link to a complete pdf of the times and costs.
