Villa Pliniana

Hotel in Torno

About 1.5km east of Torno, the waterfront Villa Pliniana is one of the most exclusive places to stay on Lake Como. Constructed in the 16th century, Pliniana is one grand palazzo. The rooms are luxuriously appointed, and the 18 acres of gardens and private spa (complete with heated swimming pool) make for quite the royal hideaway.

Lord Byron was a guest at the villa and his friend Percy Bysshe Shelley thought about buying it.
