What's Tremezzo Like?
Tremezzo's scenic location in a sheltered bay on Lake Como has a substantial appeal, but the town's main attraction for many is the remarkable Villa Carlotta. The 18th-century villa is a striking neo-classical building in pink and white, housing a diverse collection of statues with a romantic theme. The gardens are the true highlight though, an extensive landscaped array of trees, fountains and flower displays, with inspiring views over the lake. As a contrast to the elegance of the fashionable 19th-century houses of Tremezzo, the mainly 17th-18th century area of Rogaro features traces of older settlements, notably the tower that is all that remains of the medieval fortifications. Beyond looms the peak of Mount Crocione, with strenuous hiking trails leading to the summit. Boat trips are a less arduous option, with regular services around Lake Como. Tremezzo hotels are the perfect base for exploring this picturesque region of northern Italy.

Although once a stop on the Grand Tour for English gentlemen, English is not necessarily understood everywhere in Tremezzo, so an Italian phrasebook will be useful. Lake Como cuisine is interesting and distinctive. Polenta is more popular than pasta in the region, and rice also features prominently on menus. Local specialties you may encounter in restaurants include risottos and fish caught in the lake, which can include the lavarello white fish, pike, tench, perch and eels. Knowledgeable hotel staff can advise on the best places to try local cuisine. Operators offer cruises on Lake Como from Tremezzo, but the regular ferry services are inexpensive and a scenic way of exploring the towns around the lake.
