Are We There Yet? – Lake Como, Italy Is Spectacular

Ahhh, Italy. It just never disappoints. And this incredible resort, the Grand Hotel Tremezzo in Lake Como, looks like it would be no exception.

The family-owned hotel is one of Lake’s historic resorts, a five-star lakeside property that provides unparalleled views of Bellagio and the stunning Gringe mountains. Built in 1910, the Grand Hotel Tremezzo is an expansive property, featuring 76 rooms and 14 suites (each with breathtaking views of Bellagio, the Riviera delle Azalee, or the flower gardens and parks), a beautiful century-old park and garden, and five restaurants led by celebrated Italian chef Gualtiero Marchesi:

o    La Terrazza Restaurant, fine dining restaurant on the terrace

o    L’Escale Fondues & Wine Bar, the first fondue and wine bar to open on Lake Como 

o    T Bar offers a light lunch and serves surprising concoctions late into the evening 

o    T Beach, a new concept that is a gourmet destination for summer

o    T Pizza, situated near the Piscina dei Fiori pool serves pizzas from a wood fire

There are three swimming pools situated throughout the property, and seven of Italy’s top 18-hole golf courses are just a short distance from the hotel.

Did I just add this destination to my bucket list? You betcha!

Bon Voyage,
