City of Menaggio

A town of fashion and luxury, the town of Cernobbio is the worldly place par excellence thanks to the presence of local and international stars that since the 60s have transformed the quiet Lombard town in an exclusive place and residence in the summer. The upper middle class Lombard and the star of the big screen have in fact chosen the small town dominated by the mountains as a meeting place for moments of leisure and celebration in the majestic villas that surround the area. And on all the famous and "enchanted" Villa d'Este. The villa was founded as a convent in 1442 but became a private residence first with Cardinal Tolomeo Gallio and finally with the Princess of Wales in 1815, who attempted to bring back to Italy the splendor of the Villa di Tivoli in Rome, also through the construction of enchanting landscaped gardens, which you can visit by reservation. Not to be missed in Cernobbio also a visit to Villa Erba, which was the set for the filming of the film "Ludwig" by Luchino Visconti and that every year hosts the Villa d'Este elegance competition: among the best known international exhibition reviews of vintage cars.
