One of the advantages of Grand Hotel Cadenabbia is that it is near Villa Carlotta botanical garden on Lake Como.
One of the most charming and characteristic locations on the entire Lake Como is just 300 meters away and can be reached quickly on foot.
The villa was founded in 1690 and over time became a landmark for the works of art preserved inside but also for its large botanical garden, included in the Great Italian Gardens circuit.
One of the most captivating environments of the entire villa is its terraced garden, designed from the earliest moments of the villa's construction. The park has the classical features of the Italian garden, with an axis of symmetry running through it, hedges pruned into shape, fountains, water features, statues, boxwood beds building geometric elements, and terraces connected by stairways.
Here it is possible to admire more than 500 species of plants that can also enjoy a particularly mild climate. The many varieties of plants and flowers in the garden ensure blooms all year round, giving visitors the opportunity to enjoy a breathtaking spectacle in any season.
In the garden of Villa Carlotta we find citrus trees, roses, camellias, hydrangeae, English roses, euphorbias, cacti, agaves, aloes, azaleas, tropical plants such as bromeliads, kentias, ficus, orchids, cinnamon, clove, patchouli, monumental trees such as cedars, calocedrus, redwoods, and pines.
Inside, here is the Villa Carlotta Museum, custodian of 19th-century works of art and furnishings that leave valuable evidence about the history of the building and its owners.
On the museum's two floors we can also admire works by Antonio Canova (Palamedes, the Muse Tersicore, Magdalene, Amore and the group Amore and Psyche), Berthel Thorvaldsen, and Francesco Hayez's painting of Romeo and Juliet's Last Kiss.
All within walking distance of the Grand Hotel Cadenabbia, a 4-star hotel on Lake Como with rooms and suites, restaurant, bar, and swimming pool.
