BELLAGIO

BELLAGIO THE PEARL OF THE COMO LAKE

 

Bellagio is located at the top of the peninsula that splits the Lake Como into two branches; it is definitely the most famous and visited destination of the area.

 

The unmistakable silhouette of Villa Serbelloni - a famous 5-star luxury hotel - and the colorful facades of the buildings overlooking the lake are photographed every day by hundreds of tourists arriving in Bellagio via the ferries that connect the villages of the Lake Como.

 

 

The historical part of Bellagio is mostly pedestrian and still well preserved, even if a large number of tourists and shops has made Bellagio a bit chaotic. Bellagio offers its best in the early morning and in the evening when the tourist flow ends when the ferry service ends.

 

Walking through the alleys and stairs is a pleasure and you can stop and sip a coffee or an aperitif, enjoying the view of the mountains and the lake in peace.

 

 

"Bellagio is definitely an incredible place you can’t miss it if you visit the Como Lake. There are many people there every day, but I suggest you visit the Villa Melzi and Villa Serbelloni’s gardens, the small villages and enjoy a lake dunking in summer.

This place surrounded by Como Lake offers an incredible landscape. It looks like a Mediterranean fjord.”

Paolo

 

 

Spending a day in Bellagio you can visit the botanical gardens of Villa Serbelloni (by appointment only, info at the tourist office) and Villa Melzi (entry fee). In addition, the various villages that make up the town of Bellagio offer many interesting views and excellent restaurants certainly less crowded.

 

In summer at the Lido di Bellagio or in the public beaches of the hamlet of San Giovanni, you can relax in the sun and swim in the waters of Lake Como.

 

It is strongly recommended to reach Bellagio by ferry from the villages of Varenna, Tremezzo, Menaggio (The daily ticket "center of the lake" includes unlimited travel).

 

Cycling and panoramic road lovers can reach Bellagio along the 2 branches of Lake Como, Como - Bellagio road or Lecco - Bellagio road, or alternatively reach Bellagio through the Erba - Civenna - Bellagio road, enjoying a visit to the Cycling Museum and the Sanctuary of the Madonna in Ghisallo.
