Villa del Balbianello: Luxury Villa on Lake Como, Italy

This amazing mansion on Lake Como, Italy is Villa del Balbianello. This villa has appeared in films including the Casino Royale Bond movie as well as Star Wars Episode II. The villa is built on the site of a Franciscan monastery, and the two towers which can be seen in the picture are the campanili of the convent church. Part of what makes Villa del Balbianello so striking is it's location perched on a skinny peninsula of the lake. One of the things that makes Lake Como so beautiful is the steep hillsides surrounding the lake which you can see in the distance.

This photo was taken a bit farther south from my previous Lake Como Villa photo in the commune of Lenno. You may also be interested in my Lago di Como at Dawn photo, Lake Como Cafe at Night photo and Italian Man Drinking Espresso photo.

You can buy this photo here, with many options including standard prints, canvas gallery wraps, gift cards, mugs, T-shirts and much more.
