Really impressive gardens, especially for any keen horticulturalist - all the plants and trees are carefully labelled and the grounds are kept immaculately. We were staying in nearby Bellagio and so were the first visitors to arrive...recommended to enjoy the tranquillity.

The gardens are so beautiful with lots of different areas of plantings and lots of shady spots from which to enjoy the incredible lake view. Perhaps not spectacular, but certainly worth an hour or two. Don't just race through ... slow down and enjoy the beauty, peace and tranquility.

Beautiful gardens along the shores of Lake Como. There are no conveniences on the grounds. Could not find a WC anywhere and no one to ask except the person who sold you the ticket. Plus there is no tour of the villa only the grounds

it is probably the most beautiful thing to see in Bellagio. of course the town and city center is very beautiful, too but these gardens are absolutely marvelous. the entrance price is not very cheap, 6 euro/person and the gardens are closed at 18.30, so if you plan to visit it do not be late. :)
