The best tour of Bellagio, the pearl of lake Como

Bellagio is known as the pearl of Lake Como, standing at the very heart of it, where the three branches of the beautiful lake meet one another. Its elegant and discreet atmosphere is a perfect metaphor of the beauties which have made these surroundings a prefect leisure location throughout the centuries.<br>This exclusive tour will allow you to first discover some of the charming coastal villages from a private speedboat at your disposal for a quick cruise; then, landing back in Bellagio, you will enjoy the magnificent garden of Villa Melzi d'Eril and the enchanting alleys of the city centre. At the end, just relax in a cosy winery, for a full tasting accompanied by local delicacies.

You must make a trip to villa Bellbanio. For those Star Wars fans this is where Padme and Anakin got married. It really is the most beautiful place. The gardens are absolutely stunning with the lake and mountains in the back drop you couldn’t ask for a more peaceful, tranquil place. There is a little cafe too you can eat, have a beer or coffee over looking the gardens and lake. Just perfect.

I thought at first this was kind of a tourist trap, but I am so happy I visited this place. There's free parking, though limited (be early), a 20 minute uphill walk. From the villa / park - there are multiple opportunities for taking great panorama pictures of lake Como, there's toilets, and a small bar. If you have only a short time to experience lake Como, spend it here.

Absolutely stunning villa. A must see. One of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. The villa is immaculate and The garden is cared for wonderfully. 22€ per person for the tour of the garden and the villa. We did not have to book online. There is free parking available.

Nicest Villa at Lago di Como at Lavedo peninsula close to Lenno. Formerly a Franciscan monastery reconstructed with a Huge Villa and a Lobby with Archs in 1787. Belonging recently to an Italian Count who was Polar researcher and left a Museum on his researches inside. A huge park with terraces and nice vegetation. At the most beautiful landscape of Lago di Cono close to the only island Isola Comacina, formerly a rich island inhabited by rich people who got thrown out during a war in medieval times ( about 12.th century) by Como soldiers because being in favor of Milano. Worthwhile passing by with a boat to have a better view

We already saw the villa from the waterside when we rented a boat (which is btw a must do on Como lake). It looks beautiful then. Therefore we also wanted to visit the villa itself. We bought tickets online (around 15 EUR PP.) There are specific timeslots. Getting there can be hard. We had luck to get a parking spot (for free) just before the entrance of the estate of the villa. From there you can walk to the entrance. It is about 15 minutes with a lot of up and down or you take a water taxi from Lenno beach resort which costs 8 EUR pp for return ticket which drops you directly at the estate. You can visit the villa garden and several rooms of the villa. All is perfectly maintained and the views are stunning and the garden is beautiful. A visit doesn't take longer than 45 minutes and for that it is not cheap. The views though are beautiful. Dogs are allowed and there are toilets and a bar to have a drink or icecream.
