Lake Como

Tremezzina, amid Villas and natural beauty

Tremezzina is located on the western banks of Lake Como, right in front of Bellagio, and is the result of a recent merger of the comunes of Lenno, Mezzegra, Ossuccio, and Tremezzo.

Visiting Tremezzina means having the chance to enjoy a place that is rich in atmosphere, history, and attractions. For example… did you know that some Star Wars’ scenes were shot here? 😀

A cool thing about Tremezzina is its proximity to very popular towns such as Bellagio and Varenna (where you can get by ferry in 10-20 minutes, starting from the nearby village of Cadenabbia) and to Menaggio (easily reachable by bus in 10′).

Prepare to read some of the best things to do in Tremezzo and surroundings, and get ready for your holidays on Lake Como!

Neoclassical villa and gardens in bloom

As you probably know, the hamlet of Tremezzo is home to one of the most famous villas on Lake Como: Villa Carlotta.

The villa – a couple of minutes away from the Tremezzo’s pier – shows some neoclassical features and is surrounded by a vast terraced garden, where you can spend most of your day without the risk of getting bored.

Springtime is obviously the best season to visit the villa: enjoy the perfume and colors of azaleas, rhododendrons, and hundreds of other plants from every corner of the world!

When you are “tired” of all this natural beauty, you can enter the villa and visit its fine art collection, which gathers valuable masterpieces by Antonio Canova, Francesco Hayez, and Bertel Thorvaldsen.

Then, you can take a walk on the lakeside of Tremezzina and enjoy a view of Bellagio.

You will see before your eyes the beautiful Villa Melzi d’Eril, another perfect combination of nature and human work. 

With Lake Como on the front and a number of historic hotels behind, you will wonder why you had never chosen to visit a place like this before!

On the set of Star Wars… with James Bond

The neighboring hamlet of Lenno is home to another wonderful attraction: Villa Balbianello.

If you are in Tremezzina from mid-March to mid-November, don’t miss the opportunity to see it. Villa Balbianello is located on the tip of the Laveno headland, and is surrounded only by nature.

You can go there by foot (walking on a 1 km footpath which starts from Via degli Artigiani) or by a taxiboat that leaves near the public beach of Lenno.

This famous villa is characterized by a picturesque structure and has been used as the setting for several movies, including A Month by the LakeCasino Royale, and Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.

The past has never been so present!

San Benedetto Abbey in Val Perlana (picture:

Ossuccio is a quiet and interesting part of Tremezzina.

One of the coolest things to do in Ossuccio is a walk to the ancient and charming San Benedetto abbey.
This Romanesque abbey takes place in Val Perlana (800 m asl) where you can get in approx. 4 hours by following these directions.

Isola Comacina, Lake Como

Take a taxi boat from Ossuccio and visit Isola Comacina, the only island in Lake Como.

This small piece of land, almost uninhabited, hosts important traces of local history and art – such as three “artists’s homes”, built by Rationalist Pietro Lingeri in 1940 – and welcomes visitors between March and October.

A walk among towns, churches and villas

Nature lovers will love the Greenway del Lago, a pleasant 10 km walk which starts from Colonno and gets to Cadenabbia.

The Greenway runs along several lake towns – partly just above the settlements, partly on the lakefront – and lets you discover Lake Como through its villas and gardens, Roman findings, and wonderful examples of architecture.
