If you are in Bellagio you must go and relax in "I Giardini di Villa Melzi". View of the lake is amazing. You just can stay , watch and relax.

It was very picturesque along the lake front, however it was disappointing not to be able to go into the actual villa. The garden at Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo was much more impressive.

A short walk from the center of Bellagio. Worth an afternoon stroll through the manicured English gardens, enriched with sculptures, designed by architect Luigi Canonica and botanist Luigi Villoresi. Unfortunately, the azaleas and rhododendrons were not in bloom yet. Some varieties of camellias were in bloom however. In season I'm sure they're amazing - some of the largest I've ever seen. The 1808 villa is not open for touring and not particularly of interest architecturally from the exterior. The small lake-side "coffee house" of Moorish style classical temple is a definite photo op, particularly from the path above. The neoclassical chapel, a Palladian style temple designed and decorated by Giocondo Albertolli with plaster rosettes, and with frescoes by Angelo Monticelli (1780-1839) is also open to visitors.
