Villa Olmo, Como: 6 reviews and 6 photos

  Como by Jelena

Favorite thing: "The neoclassical inspiration of Simone Cantoni fully manifests itself in the design of the villa's facade; a central body with five wide entrances in the median zone, above which rise six Ionic style columns. The roof of the villa is surronded by a balustrade interrupted by a large coat of arms of the Visconti di Modrone dukes. Especially striking is the great number of windows which give light to every room and which provide views of the lake and the garden of incomparable natural beaty. "
