Are you ready? Read what to expect in Bellagio, Lake Como!
THE OLD TOWN IN BELLAGIO
Shops, local food and tradition
The tiny streets of Bellagio are so beautiful that a simple stroll is well worth a visit.
The old town of Bellagio has one main street, Via Giuseppe Garibaldi , which leads to Punta Spartivento (tip of the village) in less than 10 minutes .
On Via Giuseppe Garibaldi, visitors will find dozens of shops and boutiques where you can find local groceries, leather goods, clothing, perfumes, and more.
To the left of the main road, several alleys lead to the lake shore, with a view of the Com arm of the lake.
These alleys are also full of shops and restaurants … and stairs too! So wear comfortable shoes and be prepared for many ups and downs.
In the city centre, you can get to Piazza della Chiesa and admire the Basilica of San Giacomo , a Romanesque church built between the 11th and 12th centuries.
VILLA SERBELLONI & VILLA MELZI
Gardens not to be missed
After a stroll along the romantic Lungo Lario Manzoni lakeshore, you will reach the world famous Villa Serbelloni, a luxury hotel that was built in the 15th century and is currently owned by the Rockefeller Foundation.
If you are not a guest of the villa, you cannot visit the interior of the villa. However, you can book a visit and enjoy a stroll in the 50 hectares of parks and gardens that surround the villa (contact Promo Bellagio for more information).
Strolling through the Villa Melzi Gardens is definitely one of the best things to do while in Bellagio, Italy.
Open from March to October, the villa was built between 1808 and 1810 by order of the Duke of Lodi, Francesco Melzi d’Eril. The gardens were designed by Luigi Canonica and Luigi Villoresi.
The park is home to a large number of exotic trees, camellias, rhododendrons and azaleas , among other things .
Visitors can choose between different routes as these gardens combine many elements of artistic, cultural and historical interest. The entrance fee is € 6.50 (payment only in cash).
Take Via Eugenio Vitali and a short walk will take you to Punta Spartivento .
You are in the middle of the three arms of the lake where the locals’ boats moor and where you have a chance to relax and snap some amazing photos.
Another great place to relax is Pescallo , an old fishing village southeast of the foothills.
A stepped path starting from Bellagio Town Hall will get you there in around 10 minutes. Pescallo is a very popular destination for sports lovers . So don’t miss the opportunity to go kayaking or water skiing!
