"Tremezzina" (a union of the towns Colonno, Ossuccio, Lenno, Tremezzo und Griante) extends over the west shore of the lake Como, directly opposite from Bellagio. The climate is very mild and the vegetation lush.
Since the Roman times this small piece of Italy has been known for its "eternal spring". The tranquil gardens, the olive- and myrtle trees surrounding noble residences and the many picturesque towns along the lake, serve as the frame for romantic lake Como. Tremezzo is less than one hour's car drive from Milan. It is accessible by public transport and also by steamboats, hydrofoils and private water taxis. Car ferries run on a regular basis.
The mild climate has contributed to make Tremezzina to a wonderful holiday resort: The German Chancellor, Konrad Adenauer regularly spent his holidays here, Queen Victoria of England, Guiseppe Verdi and many other famous personalities have stayed here. Enchanting villas and large hotels, some dating from the 18th century, make Tremezzo an object of international tourism. In Rogaro, one of the antique sectors of Tremezzo, high above the lake, one can visit an antique tower dating from the Middle Ages. The famous "Asparagus-feast" in honour of the "black Madonna" is celebrated here every year in May. From Intignano, where the hotel "La Perla" is located, one can take a footpath to the nearby Crocione" mountain
The Villa Carlotta", internationally renowned for its magnificent park, is a masterpiece of architecture and botany, where fragrant azaleas, thriving rhododendrons, lemon trees and banana, bamboo, coffee and tea plants compete with each other for the visitor's attention. Each room in the villa has is its own special piece of antiquity, which include works of art by Canova and Hayez.
