Bellagio oozes glamour. Situated on the tip of land between the two branches of Lake Como, it has unrivalled views across the lake and to nearby towns such as Varenna and Menaggio. The orientation of the town gives the illusion that you’re on an island, adding to the tranquillity.
The heart of Bellagio is a small, intricate mesh of cobbled alleys, littered with boutiques, cafes and gelaterias. This is surrounded by a collection of quaint hamlets, all reachable on foot or by bike. And, as a stark contrast to the narrow streets and understated properties, you have Villa Melzi and Villa Serbelloni, both of which are grand properties dating back centuries.
