It's a lovely lakeside walk from the historic centre of Como to Villa Olmo. Unfortunately the villa is closed for renovation at the moment. The grounds between the lake and villa are still open and from there you get good views of the lake. The...More

Whilst I don't know what the Villa would be like inside, the gardens do not seem very special. They certainly don't compare to Villas Melzi, Monastero, Serbelloni, Cypresi, Balbianello etc. Maybe if you are at a loose end in Como. Its on a very busy...More

It's said Napolean stayed here. Certainly looks the part--wonderful old villa right on Lake Como. Beautiful grounds you can self-tour. But the building is being renovated and was closed.

Have a long walk from Como city centre around the lake. You will see a lot of nice villas, some are government offices now, others are still inhabited.

Hi Pick another villa to visit as this one is tired and being renovated. I recommend spending your money at Villa del Balbianello it is simply stunning.

Beautiful villa, visit was made extra special by a guided tour from a pleasant young gentleman who was a student and had only been there a few days, his knowledge of the villa and its history was astounding.

We walked to the villa along the lake edge from the centre of Como, which is a beautiful scenic stroll. As we arrived we didn't think we would be able to get in, as there is currently a lot of renovation work going on in...More

No, i giardini resteranno aperti esattamente come nell’ultimo anno, quindi con il solo camminamento a ridosso del lago. Per poterli visitare appieno devi attendere l'estate.

Esprit for the delay. I believe the grounds are open all year round. After reading other reviews it would seem the villa is in need of refurbishment but the grounds are beautiful
