Tennyson and Longfellow raved about Lake Como, and Forbes magazine has named Villa d’Este “Best Hotel in the World,” so it’s little wonder discerning travelers have discovered this heavenly spot, a favorite among international celebrities and royalty. Villa d’Este is a magnificent manse on the lakeshore, offering 152 immaculate guestrooms and suites, all uniquely designed and decorated with choice period furniture, oil paintings and Como silk. Take time to visit the Zen-based Beauty Center or play a few rounds on the Peter Gannon–designed golf course, just a few miles from the villa.
