Villa Olmo is the most celebrated and sumptuous of the historic homes of Como and one that made Como one of the driving forces of the Enlightenment in Italy.
It is a stylish structure with high aesthetic and compositional values. The construction of Villa Olmo began at the end of the eighteenth century and was completed in 1812. It passed from the hands of the Odescalchi family to the Raimondi, and hence the Visconti di Modrone and finally in 1925 to the municipal authority which has used it to host cultural events and art exhibitions.
The garden around the villa is beautifully landscaped and you can admire the lake while taking a stroll around the Villa. The lakeside is a perfect way to spend a lazy afternoon.
