Villa Del Balbianello - Review

The Villa del Balbianello is a villa in the comune of Lenno (province of Como), Italy, overlooking Lake Como. It is located on the tip of a small wooded peninsula on the western shore of the south-west branch of Lake Como, not far from the Isola Comacina and is famous for its elaborate terraced gardens.

The villa was built in 1787 on the site of a Franciscan monastery for the Cardinal Angelo Maria Durini. The two towers belong to the campanili of the convent church.

The Villa now belongs to the National Trust of Italy. Its grounds now form part of the Grandi Giardini Italiani.

A number of feature films have used the villa for location shooting, including A Month by the Lake (1995), Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones (2002), and Casino Royale (2006).

Villa Del Balbianello, Como Reviews

  • Definitely the most beautiful villa on Lake Como, and possibly my favorite one in the entire world. Amazing location, interesting history and a stunning design, its terraces are the most beautiful I've ever seen. Used as a set for many movies (007, star wars, and many more), it also houses the many collections of its late owner, and is an interesting museum in itself. Absolutely a must visit if you're on lake Como, and a reason in itself to visit it if you're not.

  • Very beautiful garden, we didn’t do the tour cause the next tour in English was in about 2h time. I can recommend taking the boat to the villa for $5 and walk back. The walk back is mostly downhill and the boat ride to the villa is beautiful. You can take the boat from the entrance to the park that leads up to the villa. Highly recommended visiting this villa when in the area.

  • Absolutely gorgeous. Wonderful grounds. Be sure to take a guided tour around the property as it is well worth the admission price alone. National Trust (UK) members get a discount too.

  • Beautiful setting on a small peninsula near Tremezzo. Garden is fairly small but it is offset by the magnificent location of the villa. I recommend taking a guided tour to gain more insight into the history of the building and the last owner’s heritage. It is a popular place for weddings and rightfully so, the only downside is that the place attempts to capitalize on some of the films shot there and therefore you may see Star Wars like characters roaming around.

  • Unbelievably beautiful place. There is a super nice hike to it as well. You can pay to visit the gardens for 10€ and an additional 10€ to go inside the museum/mansion. Pretty busy.
