FAI Spring Days 2018


The FAI Spring Days will take place on March 24th and 25th 2018.
During these special days FAI, the Italian National Trust opens its hidden treasures to the public to celebrate the Italian cultural heritage.
It’s a unique opportunity to discover churches, villas, castles, historical towns, gardens, and nature trails often closed to the public, thanks to the the work of volunteers.

After the big success of last year, Tremezzina is ready to welcome the visitors that will take the opportunity to discover the hidden gems of Lake Como: the Villa del Balbianello, with its spectacular gardens right down to the edge of the lake and the Torre del Soccorso, a fortified tower located on a rocky outcrop above the village of Ossuccio, with an amazing view over the Comacina Island and Lake Como.
