Bellagio

Although I don’t live in the town of  Bellagio, it is dear to my heart. Every time I go there, the resort style atmosphere is instantly relaxing. The charming little lanes, churches and boutiques transport you into a fairytale come true.

The name Bellagio comes from bel lago, meaning beautiful lake. Bellagio sits at the Y of the lake and has spectacular views of the widest part of the lake and the Swiss Alps.

Accommodation

You may know the Las Vegas resort, but did you know it was named and modeled after the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni in Bellagio Italy? You won’t get a better opportunity to visit the original! If five-star accommodation is out of budget, there are lovely B&Bs and apartment rentals.

Getting there

There are no trains going to Bellagio. Bellagio can be reached by car from the Como side or by car-ferry from Varenna. If you are traveling by train, go to Varenna and take the passenger ferry.

What to See & Do

Bellagio is the most popular tourist attraction on Lake Como. Bellagio is the Italy you’ve dreamed of; it’s both quaint and beautiful as well as luxurious. In the summer months, Bellagio is bustling with tourists from all over the world. It is not as quiet as some of the other surrounding villages on Lake Como, but is well worth visiting.

Villa Melzi gardens

Don’t miss the beautiful botanic garden at Villa Melzi, and take the time to wander around the city center for shopping and cafe hopping. Get a gelato at the port and sit on a bench watching the sailboats go by.

If you are a cycling enthusiast don’t miss a hike or ride up to La Madonna del Ghisallo church, which is considered the patron saint of cyclists. I did an excellent E-bike tour and saw the best of the town and the secret little corners.

Bellagio is also home to The Rockefeller Foundation, a truly inspiring place for the arts, humanities and educative advancement.

You can take another ferry to Cadenabbia-Tremezzina and visit Villa Balbianello and Villa Carlotta.
