The gardens are worht it in their own to take a visit to this wonderful villa, they are apparantly based on an English garden (the irony!) but it didn't look too English to me, very pretty and green and lush.

One of the most beautiful botanical gardens in this part of Como. It is a must I would say. It costs 6 euro for a day visit or 8 euro for a 2 days visit. The daily entrance allows you to visit the park again during the day.

A must we thought is was so beautiful and immaculately kept. we entered from Bellagio end and got our hand stamped walked to the next village- San giovanni and re entered after lunch to finish the upper side of the garden. The only thing which needs improvement are the toilets( say no more) don't let this put you off.

The most beautiful gardens I've ever seen in my life. I visited the gardens with my family and friends. It's impressive how many different species of plants there are! A slice of heaven!

Villa Melzi is one of the important place in Bellagio. It is on the right side of the ferry just 3 minutes. It has a wonderful garden with beautiful flowers in it. I am sure, you will enjoy your visit to Villa Melzi

This is a special visit. See movie locations from James Bond and Star Wars. It is so beautiful. I recommend that you get a guided tour.

Beautiful park with beautiful historic buildings, well kept and definitely worth a visit when you're in Bellagio. There is a fee to enter and you get an information leaflet that explains the main components of the park.
