Villa d’Este is located in Cernobbio, on Lake Como and is one of the most popular destinations for international tourism in Italy, not only for its famous hotels, home to major conventions, and also known for hosting kings and heads of been in history; but also for important events related to the nautical and design sector. The next event is the Concours d’Elegance on 23 May, which will also be the moment when Sotheby’s auction house will offer RM fans and collectors two particularly famous Riva motorboats. The first is a Riva Super Florida (341) belonging to the actress Brigitte Bardot, a gift from Roger Vadim in 1959; the second is a Riva Acquarama Special (hull number 652), built in 1976 by Emir of Qatar Sheikh Hamad-al-Thani. The Concours d’Elegance offers the opportunity to get to know Villa d’Este. Considered one of the most beautiful buildings of the ‘500, Villa d’Este was designed by Pellegrino Pellegrini, also known as “Il Tibaldi” and is surrounded by a private park of 10 hectares with thousands of old trees including a majestic plane tree more than 500 years. Transformed into a luxury hotel in 1873, Villa d’Este with its 152 rooms (double rooms, junior suites and suites) and a view of the lake or the park offers an exclusive and unique point of view on Lake Como.
