The villages on Lake Como each have their own character but all enjoy wonderful views of the lake and surrounding mountains. Inghams resorts are all served by lake ferries for leisurely sightseeing and why not join an Inghams wanderwalk so you can explore the surrounding area where you are staying.

THE VILLAS AND GARDENS OF LAKE COMO

The idyllic lakeside villas of Como have always attracted the rich and famous. Today they are reminders of more elegant times. Villa Balbianello, with its magnificent gardens and views should not be missed. 17th century Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo contains sculpture by Canova and 4 acres of gardens with azaleas, rhododendrons
and ancient cedars and sequoias. In Bellagio, Villas Melzi and Serbelloni can also be visited; entrance is around €8.50 (reductions for over 65’s). Even today, these villas retain their glamour.
