A beautiful villa & glorious gardens too. The villa is now a museum, and has many interesting items in the art collection. Allow at least 3 hrs for your visit.

No parking onsite, only on the road. Watch out for restrictions. Depending on where you are coming from, an alternative is to leave your car somewhere else, and catch the ferry. Whatever you choose to do, Villa Carlotta is... More
