The romantic lakes of Northern Italy have attracted visitors for thousands of years. Their natural beauty has been the setting and inspiration for countless musicians, artists and poets. From crenellated castles to artists' abodes, Villas on the Lakes will take you on a tour of some of the most striking villas and gardens on lakes Orta, Maggiore, Como and Garda. Specially commissioned to include previously unpublished locations, encompassing a range of styles from the late Renaissance and Baroque until the present day and examining the domestic architecture of the area, from homes which are palatial in scale, to tiny island retreats, Villas on the Lakes visits some of the most extraordinary and romantic villas in Italy.
