The Pearls of the Lake: Villa Balbianello and Bellaggio

Private boat tour to discover the Pearls of the Lake: Villa Carlotta, Villa del Balbianello, Bellagio, Varenna, Tremezzina. A blaze of beauty, colors and emotions.

With an exciting “race” on the water, we will reach one of the most precious and internationally known lake’s jewels: Villa del Balbianello.
Villa del Balbianello is a historic building in Lenno, located on the tip of the Lavedo peninsula. The panorama that can be admired from the house makes it one of the most spectacular in Lario.

At the end of the 18th century Cardinal Durini, a scholar and patron, chose this corner of the lake to make it a retreat of delight and literary entertainment. A vocation recovered in modern times by Guido Monzino, entrepreneur, writer, collector and traveler, in 1974 made the Villa the refuge where he could collect the memories of an adventurous life.

The choreography of the garden, personally supervised by Dr. Monzino, leaves you amazed: daring pruning, romantic glimpses, avenues lined with statues, panoramic terraces and copious blooms and the eighteenth-century loggia that crowns the entire garden. An enchanted place, which has prompted many Hollywood directors to set famous sagas such as those of Star Wars and 007 here.

By boat we will then reach Villa Carlotta, where we will enjoy the choreography of the gardens from the lake. The tour continues towards Bellagio, the “Pearl of Lake Como”.

Orientation tour and lunch in the typical village.

On the return way we will pass in front of Varenna to continue along the eastern shore of the lake to Colico.
