What to do in Bellagio

Bellagio, Lake Como’s pearl. Get off in Bellagio, the famous town that attracts visitors from all around the world, while remaining authentic. Your guide will provide a deep orientation of every important sight of Bellagio, which can easily be visited autonomously, such as Punta Spartivento, Basilica of San Giacomo of Romanesque architecture, and Via Roma. 

Take a moment and stop at a typical and secret 18th century cellar for fine wine, cheese and ham tasting. Take this moment to relax and enjoy quality time with your peers while savoring some of the best local products. Fancy a souvenir? The old town is full of many boutiques, designer stores, perfumes and jewelry stores. Did you know that Lake Como is internationally known for its silk products? You can in Bellagio’s shops find elegant scarves, bags, ties and many more. 

We suggest getting lost in this picturesque old town center with its pretty and colourful little streets. Let yourself wander around and enjoy the beautiful views over the lake, ending at the hauntingly beautiful gardens of Villa Melzi. This botanical paradise will greet you with water lilies just beyond a kiosk of Moorish architecture overlooking Lake Como.
