Art and Culture

Holidays are for devoting time to the things you love. If you love culture, Lake Como has more than its fair share of attractions. From the history emanating from spectacular villas to getting creative with a camera lens through to expressing yourself in paint, the Grand Hotel Tremezzo purveys a unique portfolio of cultural experiences.

Painting class

Set up your easel at the highest point of our grounds and enjoy a few peaceful hours with a local award winning artist. Draw in the merging blues of the lake and sky, rugged mountains and enchanting villages and express your emotional response to the magic in paint. A personal keepsake of your time at the lake.

Please allow 12-24 hours for the concierge to organise your experience.

Photography outing

See Lake Como through the camera lens and capture your personal response to its overwhelming beauty. Grab your camera or smartphone and set off on foot with a photographer to snap the charm of quintessentially Italian lake villages. Be inspired by age-old history and wholly unspoilt nature and go home with lasting memories of your time at the lake.

Please allow 24 hours for the concierge to organise your experience.

Opulent villas

Discover a world of period glamour in the extravagant villas lining the lakeshore. Walk in the footsteps of princes and princesses, cardinals and illustrious travellers as you stroll around beautifully tended gardens overlooking the blue waters and marvel at the plush architecture, inside and out. Admire paintings, sculptures and tapestries and feel history breathe.

Please ask the concierge for any information about tickets, transport and opening times. Guided tours and private visits of the villas are available on demand.
