In more recent times, the same tranquil lake attracts royalty and film stars alike, who have all been captivated by its splendour. Numerous small towns and villages line the shores with their lakeside promenades, cafes and magnificent villas and gardens and we include a cruise on Lake Como and a visit to the magnificent Villa Carlotta. Built for the Milanese marquis Giorgio Clerici in 1690, this beautiful villa boasts fabulous botanic gardens and art masterpieces. We visit Como, boasting a beautiful lakeside promenade and an interesting old town.
