Take a virtual tour of the unusual garden of Villa del Balbianello

Lake Como Villas have to keep their doors closed due to the current COVID-19 situation, but the curators are getting innovative to provide the public with virtual access to the Lake Como gems.

Fondo Ambiente Italiano, the fund that manages the Villa, invites to take a virtual walk along with the garden of the Villa del Balbianello.

Villa del Balbianello is located 38 km from Como on the edge of the peninsula, near the picturesque town called Tremezzina. The 18th-century romantic mansion and its unusual garden have hosted writers, scholars, and travelers, including Count Guido Monzino, the last owner of the Villa.

Several episodes of the movies, including Star Wars Episode, A Month by the Lake, Casino Royale, were shot here.

The garden of Villa del Balbianello is not related to the usual landscape styles: it is very distinctive. It represents the elements of Italian gardens, harmoniously mixed with characteristics of French and English parks.
