Tremezzo is a lovely village that lays on the western shore of the beautiful Lake Como, right across Bellagio. From Tremezzo is very easy to explore the Lake Como area; thanks to the renewed popularity of the region the city is visited all year round.

The village has two faces: a coastal one and a hilly one, both gorgeous; the visitors will be able to have very different experiences during their stay.

Like many other towns of the Italian Lake District Tremezzo popularity grew during the 18th and 19th centuries when it became a famous destination of the Grand Tour. Italian and European nobles chose it as their getaway; many luxurious hotels and stunning villas were built in order to accommodate them.

A perfect example is the magnificent Grand Hotel; built in the Italian Liberty Style at the beginning of the 20th century the Hotel is still very popular.

In Tremezzo visitors will find the only historic Villa of the area open to the public: Villa Carlotta. This enchanting building was erected during the 18th century in a neo-classical style. The marvellous staircases at the entrance, the original Canova’s sculptures and the spectacular gardens will give you the opportunity to step back in the past and live for few hours like a european aristocratic of the 19th century!

Things to see

Worth a visit is the lovely Church of Santa Maria where in 1917 a rich Swiss catholic family moved the beautiful statue of the Black Madonna.

While in the city don’t forget to try the mouth-watering local cuisine in one of the many restaurants that you will find close to the waterfront!
