Italy’s third-largest lake, Lake Como is also the place to go for Italy’s VIPs—and has been since ancient Roman times. Opulent villas and their gardens, like the Villa Monastero above, line the lake, while modern-day celebrities who have had homes on Lake Como include Madonna, Gianni Versace, James Bond, and George Clooney.
Lesser-known and smaller than its famous neighbor, Lake Maggiore, Lago d’Orta long has been a destination for artists and writers. Here’s where Nietzsche met Lou Andreas Salome; other famous visitors include Balzac, Robert Browning, and Henry Bourdeaux.
