Known as the ‘Pearl of Lake Como’, Bellagio is one of the lake’s most idyllic towns. It boasts an enviable location on the cape that divides the lake in two, with mesmerising views over the water and surrounding mountains.
The narrow cobbled streets of the town are ripe for exploration, and are filled with bustling shops including enotecas (wine shops) and giornalaios (newsagents) selling old-fashioned postcards and charming souvenirs. The town also boasts a small number of historic churches and pretty parks to visit, but is perhaps best known for the many regal villas that grace the surrounding landscape. One of the most popular of these is the majestic Villa Melzi, which features stunning formal gardens that look out over the lake.
Set just across the water from Menaggio and Varenna, Bellagio is a prime location from which to enjoy the delights of Lake Como.
