Bellagio is by far the prettiest of all the towns on Lake Como. It’s a picturesque lakeside town of cobbled backstreets, multi-hued buildings and chic terraces with Italian charm in abundance. Located at the foot of the lake with the verdant hills in the backdrop, it’s little wonder that visitors instantly fall under its spell. There’s enough to see and do in Bellagio to contentedly stay here exploring at a leisurely pace, but its also well connected by ferry to the neighbouring towns making day trips easy and fuss-free. For those fortunate enough to spend time in Bellagio, here are a few recommendations:-
Bar Caffe Rossi – An Art Nouveau bar with a terrace overlooking the cobbled square and lake in the distance.
Villa Melzi – This beautiful villa is located on the lakeshore and boasts vast gardens studded with ornate sculptures.
Ristorante Antico Pozzo – Arguably the best pizza in Bellagio: handmade, stone-oven baked and generously topped with lashings of olive oil. This is pizza at it should be made.
Villa Serbelloni – Pop into this Neoclassic villa for a lakeside lunch or evening cocktail in its lavish interior.
Ristorante Bilacus – A rooftop terrace located in the heart of Bellagio serving classic Italian dishes and lovely wines to match.
Ristorante la Punta – Probably one of the most romantic restaurants on Lake Como with breathtaking views overlooking the lake and an exquisite menu.
Silvio – A rustic restaurant specialising in freshwater fish and simple Italian cooking.
