What to expect

Having featured in films like Casino Royale and Star Wars, you can expect Villa del Balbianello to dazzle with all the glamour that Lake Como is famed for. You'll enjoy a private boat tour to see the impressive villa and gardens from afar, then head inside to explore its 18th century splendour on a guided visit.

Before you get to head inside one of the most famous villas around Lake Como, you'll scoot along the lake in a private boat so that you'll capture it from its best angle. Sitting on the tip of the Lavedo promontory jutting out into the lake, it's a sight to behold – you'll soon see why it's a popular wedding destination - and once you're on dry land you'll get to marvel at it all up close.

Wander around its renowned terraced gardens and then delve into the lavishly-furnished interiors with your guide. Admire the glass paintings, Chinese porcelain, tapestries and artefacts, which belonged to the previous owner, Count Guido Monzino who acquired them on his travels. A picture-perfect afternoon tour.
