About Bellagio

Beautiful, glamorous Bellagio sits at the peak of the inverted ‘Y’ of Lake Como, the perfect destination for exploring the lake and admiring its pristine views. But the town itself is a popular attraction, it’s one of the prettiest and most famous on the lake, and some of the best places to stay in Bellagio are also some of the grandest places to stay on Lake Como.

So famous that it can be a bit busy by the quay, but you can still escape the crowds and find great hotels in Bellagio, if you venture upwards along streets which seem to be all steps, towards the town’s green shutters and red roofs and traditional old appeal. Beyond that you’ll find the colourful rhododendron groves and the Villa Serbelloni where Napoleon once stayed.

What Not To Miss

  • The spectacular architecture at I Giardini di Villa Melzi with its sensational views over the lake. The gardens are also one of the main attractions here with a wonderful assortment of plants and trees.
  • For something a bit different visit Madonna del Ghisallo - a well-kept chapel and museum dedicated to cycling with various historic cycling pieces inside - a must for cycling fans!
  • Or for impressive views across Lake Como and onto the Swiss Alps visit La Punta Spartivento for a delightful meal with a view.
  • For a different perspective of the stunning area, rent a boat to explore the lake and enjoy some tranquil time on the water.

Our pick of the best places to stay in Bellagio allow visitors to really relax and enjoy the stunning surroundings.
