Lake Como, the pearl of Italy must be your next travel destination. Not visiting this magnificent place, at least once in your life, is the biggest mistake you’ll ever make!
With its central position in Lombardy, this beautiful lake is a popular summer resort since the age old Roman period, and today is known as the most attractive holiday destination for celebrities.
The atmosphere is cozy and romantic, typical for the cultural and intellectual life of the Italians.

The first villa worth visiting is the Villa del Balbianello. Those who once set foot here say they feel like in paradise, because the view from every corner is amazing.
Villa d’Este is located in Cernobbio and was built in 1568. Formerly a hotel, until was transformed into a place for relaxation and enjoying a good view back in 1873. And today it has retained the original, classic look with a large terrace, swimming pool and lush garden.
