Visiting Villa del Grumello
I want to tell you about my recent visit to the park of Villa del Grumello (http://www.villadelgrumello.it/) in Como, the city where I was born, I studied and I currently live.
Villa del Grumello is a private villa in front of the lake of Como, near Villa Olmo and five minutes far from Cernobbio, the little village popular for its majestic Villa d’Este, one of the most important luxury hotel in the world.
The garden of the villa is reachable by a bridge, called “il chilometro della conoscenza”, from the park of Villa Olmo and, in five minutes by walk, you’ll able to entry to the park of Villa del Grumello, with its enchanting greenhouse, the beautiful park and the ancient Villa in front of the lake, where you can find a very important Cedrus libani.
Let me show you some pictures I took during my tour.
The park is quite big and well mainteined, although some parts are not accessible, because the restoration works are – actually – in progress from 2010 but not finished yet.
Anyway, you can see the great work already done in these beautiful images.
The walking in the park is very peaceful and the view of the lake from the top of the garden is great, as you can see below.
I hope you enjoy the selected photos of my tour.
If you’ll decide to visit my beautiful city of Como, my suggestion is to find 2 or 3 hours to visit also the park of Villa del Grumello with its plants and flowers, for discovering a not convenzional corner of green inside the city.
