“Punta Balbianello is a promontory that sticks out into Lake Como near the town of Lenno. This promontory can be reached via a beautiful trail that winds from the bay at Lenno through some gorgeous woodland – this walk is a highlight and is perfect for those who enjoy hiking. Located on the Punta is the Villa Balbianello – this Baroque villa complex was constructed during the 18th century over the original site of a monastery. From this villa you are granted with some sublime views of Lake Como – the various terraces open out onto the lake and you can see for miles across to the opposite shore and the towns of Vergonese and Bellagio.”

“Villa Balbianello, property of FAI, is located on a peninsula of the Lario, from which you can enjoy enchanted views. A romantic and elegant residence, it has always hosted literati and travelers. Its marvelous gardens range from romantic views, avenues lined with statues, panoramic terraces and copious blooms. The beauty and wonders of Balbianello were the keys that pushed many directors of Holliwood to set sagacities such as Star Wars and 007 here. Now the Villa welcomes ceremonies from all over the world. Villa Balbianello can be reached from Bellano by boat ”
