The Villa is absolutely amazing! After taking a tour of the grounds, it's important to sit and enjoy the beautiful splendor! I made sure to bring a book and relax for a few hours! However, keep in mind that if you walk to the Villa...More
We stopped at Villa del Balbianello as part of a water taxi tour of Lake Como. We had half an hour, which was enough time to enjoy the gardens. A longer stay would have let us tour the buildings as well, but we very much...More
Villa del Balbianello or to some people just Balbianello is a fantastic place with a stunning view of the lake from Lenno to Bellagio and further up the lake. A couple of years ago they opened up for the public to walk to the park....More
You want to visit for a few reasons, which in the end you will realize are all the same - serenity. That's why Anakin and Padme "fell in love" here. That's why a beaten James Bond stayed here to recover. And that's why you will...More
Parking is about 1 km from the Villa (free- limited availability). Then a 20 min walk up and down hill to the Entrance or take the water taxi (5 Euros 1 way or 7 RT.) We walked there and rode back.

Hotel can tell you where to get the ferry. The water taxi ran every 15 minutes when we were there. Cost 5€ per person. It is a 5 minute walk to taxi stand from ferry terminal. You can also walk to the villa but going is all up hill. Suggest taking the taxi going and if you have the time walk back to see different views. When you get to the villa you can buy a ticket to tour inside the buildings
