We visited in March 2015. The weather was still cold and hence, the flowers were really not in bloom yet. That being said, the gardens were still spectacular. We thoroughly enjoyed it as it was very well maintained. There are many different interested aspects of the gardens to explore. I would highly recommend it as it's worth the admission fee.... More

Beautiful gardens with the best view of the lake. Well worth the price - the 2 day pass for 8 euro is a must!

Lovely gardens. The grounds are very well kept. Perfect for an afternoon stroll. So serene. Really interesting historical site. A must see if you're in Bellagio.

Absolutely pretty and serene against the backdrop of Lake Comoros and mountains, I am totally captivated by the blossoming flowers. An amazing experience to appreciate by visiting it.

Amazing gardens by the lake, no roads in between. Is not possible to visit the inside of the Villa but the outside is gorgeous enough. When visiting Bellagio this is a must. Best visiting in spring time.

We visited the Melzi Gardens on an overcast day in September when most of the flowers were not in bloom, and absolutely enjoyed the experience! I believe one could visit any time of the year and fall victim to the beauty and serenity of these gardens. Many go to the Lake district to get away from the hustle and bustle... More

This is such a beautiful part of Bellagio and one you should not miss. I've been here in every season but I have to say Spring is the best! The flowers were ALIVE and the beauty is just breathtaking. Spend time here… don't rush through it. Take a book and sit by the lake. It's a beautiful living work of... More

These are really delightful gardens set alongside the lake. Although fairly formal they have a very relaxed and informal feel to them. Villa is privately owned and not open to the public. It looks beautiful. These were probably our favourite gardens on Lake Como

Visited Melzi in Mid October. Great gardens and architecture...superb vistas of Lake Como...If staying in Bellagio you really must take the short walk to Melzi and stroll around and get lost. The property, lawns, trails, pathways, shrubs were very well maintained - much more enjoyable and much better maintained than Carlotta (in Tremezzo) or Monastera (in Varenna). (The only superior...
