Villa Balbianello, Lenno, Lake Como

Villa Balbianello

Built for Cardinal Angelo Maria Durini at the end of the eighteenth century, the Villa stands on a promontory overlooking Lake Como, almost opposite Bellagio. Today it presents itself as its last owner made it, the explorer Guido Monzino, with a rich collection of Chinese, African and pre-Columbian art, precious furniture from the eighteenth century English and French and a small museum with documents and mementoes of his expeditions. But the real masterpiece is the panoramic terraced garden dominated by the elegant loggia with three arches rising on the highest point of the promontory.
