Noble villas are one of the most famous attractions in Lake Como. Cernobbio houses some of the most beautiful villas in Lario and all over Italy. Among these Villa Bernasconi (whose construction dates back to the early 20th century) is undoubtedly worth a visit.
Inspired by the Art Nouveau, the villa offers some really interesting decorative features. Floral decorations and colored stained glass windows are details that show a wise combination of materials and shapes, to create a high-end artwork.
The ideal place for romantic and nostalgic!

Today Villa Serbelloni belongs to the Rockefeller Foundation and offers hospitality to artists and scientists from all over the world.
