Bellagio literally divides the two branches of Lake Como and the locals would often tend to say that Bellagio is the pearl of the Lake Como. From the Bellagio coast visitors can enjoy the view of the Alps and its peaks, on their right side they will find the most incredible town Varenna with its Villa Monastero and on the left visitors can see Great Hotel Tremezzo and the famed Villa Carlotta.
Bellagio’s city center is made of miniature, narrow roads, lanes and alleyways. The city center has one main street Giuseppe Garibaldi that will take you to the top of the village in 10 min walk.
This street is dotted with small shops and local food restaurants. The most significant monument in the city center is the San Giacomo Church built in Romanesque style in the 12th century.
The most visited attraction in Bellagio is Villa Melzi d’Eril and its gardens. Gardens are home to a large number of exotic trees, camellias, rhododendrons and azaleas to name but a few. These gardens were designed by Luigi Canonica and Luigi Villoresi.
Here visitors may also visit Villa Serbelloni, a luxury hotel that was built in the 15th Century. If our visitors are not guests of the villa, they will not be able to enter the inside of the hotel. However, they can book a visit and enjoy the walk through the magnificent park that cover the total area of 20 hectares.
