Mysteries at the Museum:Dramatic Defection, Wrong Way Flight, Cowboy's Revenge
Just 25 miles north of Milan is Lake Como, where old world aristocracy meets Hollywood royalty. Villa del Balbianello is located in the village of Lenno on a promontory that juts dramatically into the lake. It was built in 1787 on the site of a Franciscan monastery, its 2 towers still intact. The villa now houses a small museum with artwork and period furnishings, but it’s most famous for its terraced gardens, which have been featured in several films, including Casino Royale. Can you think of a more appropriate place for James Bond to convalesce?
