This website is dedicated to a trip I undertook with my family in August 2009 to Northern Italy. Lombardia to be more specific. We enjoyed a holiday at the Lako Como area.
It was not just a family vacation, but also an expedition to find the filming locations used by Lucasfilm to recreate the stunning and romantic lake retreat on Naboo in the popular movie Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones.
There are quite a few locations used, but the most prominent would be the Villa del Balbianello, a splendid villa on the Punto Balbianello promontory.
We invite you to join us through this website to discover these wonderful places.
So sit back, relax and browse this website for a spectacular holiday experience with a movie twist. You'll not be disappointed.
If you plan to undertake this trip yourself, be sure to take along the book, titled Lake Como & Villa del Balbianello with you, available from this site.
