Whenever people think about Lake Como they probably associate it with the spring and summer seasons… but what if we tell you that it’s just as beautiful during the fall?
Not only the changing of colours makes Lake Como cozier and as romantic as ever, there’s something even more appealing to the nature lovers: the Orticolario fair.
Taking place every year in the stunning Villa Erba in Cernobbio during the first weekend of October, Orticolario is an event that centers around botany and the ways it can create art and design. Between themed gardens, rare plants and workshops there are more than 270 exhibitions going on in the park and in the exposition center.
From September 28th to October 1st you can come and check out this year’s theme: WATER and its ancestral, regenerating yet also destructive relationship with humans.
There couldn’t be a more fitting theme given the location on Lake Como and especially given how fundamental water is not only to humans but to plants and nature. Each plant has a special relationship with water and Orticolario 2023 focuses on the depth of this bond, in a journey from water lilies to cacti showcasing the different habitats in which plants live.
Our team at My Home in Como is particularly aware of how important plants are not only for our planet but to create beauty and that’s why we love an event like Orticolario to collect ideas for making our exterior design just as good as our interior one.
Could Orticolario be the chance for you to start appreciating our beautiful Lake during the colder seasons? Book your stay in one of our lovely apartments on Lake Como.
Stay with us and feel at home!
