Great view

Very good view from the park to the lake. Be careful to book in advance. The villa cannot be visited, only the gardens.

The guided tour in the garden of Villa Serbelloni is really fantastic. You will walk in one of the most beautiful environments you have ever seen and will get amazing views at every corner into the different arms of lake Como.

The gardens are very beautiful and give the impression of coming from a fairy tale.
The history of the place is interesting and the guide was very nice and skilled.
Too bad it's not possible to visit the villa itself but the tour was very good anyway.

A sunny afternoon walk into a beautiful nature park in Bellagio!
Apr 2019 • Couples
We started off trying to find this place on our own without knowing it was a privately owned property. With our persistence we did find it. In the Upper part of Bellagio in the main square near the St. Giacomo church. There is a tourist office in the Old Medieval tower on the bottom floor.We bought tickets for 9 euros each and joined a guided group tour.This tour offers one of the most beautiful views I have ever seen as we walked uphill. The views of the lake and the Italian Alps along with the lake and its towns is stunning. Bring your camera!Our tour guide was excellent explaining the history of this remarkable property which has been in the hands of the Rockefeller foundation since 1959.The history dates back to the Sfondrati family in 1566 and then passed on to the Serbelloni family who poured his heart into the property.Exotic plants and trees were imported to this property and is quite an expansive park with at least 53 acres of land.The Villa is private and not opened to the public but has hosted some famous people over the years including Leonardo Da Vinci. At one point an American princess owned it and donated it to the Rockefeller foundation. Today it is used as a meeting place for scholars and conferences.Very peaceful and serene place amongst the trees.At the very top are the remains of a Roman garrison that was used to protect them against invaders.I found this tour simply amazing and the view both going up and down the hill is one I will always remember.Make sure you take good walking shoes!You can book this online ahead of time and kids are welcomed between the ages of 7-13. 5 euros.The tours are twice a day 11 am.and 3.30 pm.except Mondays and some holidays.This tour was one of the most memorable tours we have taken in Italy and we recommend it!

Wonderful walk in the Park
Oct 2019
We highly recommend a visit to Villa Serbelloni ‘s Park during your stay in Bellagio. We spent nearly 2 hours on a beautiful fall morning. We booked online to be sure we had a spot, but I think that was unnecessary in mid-October, as walk-in guests were also welcomed. Our group was only about a dozen people, and I understand up to thirty can be in a group. Cash only, I recall. And no bathrooms on the walk, but the little bar next door was very accommodating about our using theirs, so we stopped afterwards to have coffee as our thanks. Be aware that this is not a botanic garden, but more a history of the property and the Rockefeller Foundation. Go enjoy the views and the beautiful landscapes. Oh, and wear comfortable shoes, because while all the walking is on paved or gravel paths, there is a lot of uphill sections.

It was lovely to spend a couple of hours in the late afternoon walking through these gardens ~ the views are amazing, the tour guide spoke many languages and was very knowledgeable, and the work that the Rockefeller Foundation does is important to our world!

Only if you have a lot of time in Bellagio

In addition to the views of the lake, there is nothing spectacular to see in this park. The guide was very pleasant, good English speaker. She told many interesting things in the palaces of a regular climber.

This beautiful villa that was built in the era of splendor is surrounded by elegant gardens and has magnificent views of Lake Como. The staff was so helpful, the rooms were clean with modern upgrades in the bathroom, and the food options (breakfast, Michelin star restaurant and poolside) were all fab! Great spot to stay when you visit Bellagio!

Wonderful tour
Oct 2019 • Couples
We visited Villa Serbelloni park today. Petra was our tour guide and she was excellent. She was very knowledgeable and stopped along the way to point out important sites. She made sure we had no questions before we continued our walk. We would highly recommend this tour with Petra. You will not be disappointed!!

Visited this as saw it featured on Gardeners World. Did not disappoint. We visited on a guided tour via with Bellagio Water Limousines so had limited time there,
Make sure you have plenty of time to look round the house and garden as both are stunning.
