Griante is a village situated on a plateau on the West side of Lake Como in the Northern Italian region of Lombardy. About 40 minutes by train from Milan, Lake Como is recognized as the most beautiful and romantic of all the Italian alpine lakes. Its steep mountains, relatively narrow width, snowy distant peaks, and colorful lakeside villages, combine to create spectacular scenic vistas that have attracted people from all over the world.
Griante's particular location gives it, without a doubt, the most beautiful landscape vistas of all of Lake Como. It's no wonder that so many grand villas such as Villa Carlotta, Villa Collina, Villa Margherita, Villa Giuseppina, and Villa Norella have been built here and now make up the majority of its territory.
