Tremezzo Holidays

Located on the western shores of Lake Como, Tremezzo has a particularly mild climate, and a well-to-do atmosphere thanks to the beautiful villas that nestle on its shores. The area is nicknamed the Azalea Riviera due to the many azaleas and camellias that decorate the landscape. Tremezzo is perhaps best known as the home of Villa Carlotta, a spectacular 18th-century villa with more than 17 acres of manicured gardens; and Villa del Balbianello, an elaborate mansion that had a starring role in Casino Royale.

The town’s crowning glory is the Grand Hotel Tremezzo, which features one of the lake’s only floating swimming pools. Moments away from the hotel and lakefront are a cluster of restaurants and eateries. The petite gelateria is one of the most popular venues, and a must-visit on a hot summer’s day.

Tremezzo is close to numerous ferry routes too, making it easy for visitors to reach neighbouring towns like Bellagio and Varenna.

When to go

Lake Como is a summer destination, with the season generally running from April to October. Temperatures are at their hottest in July and August and this is when Como is at its busiest. The ideal time for swimming in the lake is from July to September when the water temperature exceeds 20 degrees. The climate in the spring and autumn is still warm which makes it perfect for visiting at the beginning or end of season too. For those who want to avoid the busiest crowds but still enjoy warm temperatures, May, June and September are ideal months to visit.

Visa Information

At the current time, British citizens do not require a visa to visit Italy.


Whilst tipping isn’t embedded into Italian culture it is always appreciated as an acknowledgement of good service. Nowadays people generally round up a bill in a bar or cafe and leave 5-10% extra on a restaurant bill. Taxi bills are usually also rounded up.
On guided tours/excursions, it is customary to leave a token of appreciation for the driver and guide.
On small group escorted tours, it is customary to leave a token of appreciation for the driver and guide at the end of the tour.
