First time in Lake Como area

We will be 2 couples traveling to the Lake Como area for 3 days in mid July. We think we would like to stay in Bellagio. Any suggestions for hotels? Should we stay directly on the lake? Should we stay close to the ferries or is it to noisy? Also any other suggestions for must see spots? Thank you!

One man's opinion:

it doesn't matter; you will certainly see plenty of the lake and shops no matter where you stay; the whole area is so beautiful that you can probably safely concentrate on the individual hotel and go for what pleases you.

The area around the ferry stop was never noisy, in our experience. It does get fairly busy with pedestrian traffic at times, but not so that we found it a nuisance.

If we were returning to Bellagio, i would focus on price and amenities of the hotel.

Yes, stay directly on the lake - The Hotel Metropole is located directly on the lakefront, and it's lovely!

We are 2 couples visiting Bellagio for the first time in early June and we have booked an apartment through Hotel Silvio - La Terrazza which is near the Hotel Metropole but you have the advantage of living area to commune in and a large terrace which looks fabulous. We cant wait! We arrive and leave a day either side of our friends so we are staying at the Hotel Silvio then and it also looks like a great spot...

That looks lovely. The pinkish hotel on the left of the picture is the Bellagio. They are neighbours. I recall seeing the terrace from the Metropole.
