Calvin在路上Bellagio is located at the intersection of the "Y" shape of Lake Como in Italy. This small town surrounded by water on three sides is a well-known European holiday resort, known as the pearl of Lake Como. Its history, culture and natural landscape can be regarded as one of the most charming scenery in Como. From Leonardo, Napoleon to Roosevelt, Kennedy and Churchill, from Rothschild to George Clooney, Bellagio was very passionate. Bellagio has many historical and horticulturally important villas and gardens. The location of the intersection gives Bellagio the most magnificent lake view. The narrow cobblestone alleys of the town undulate according to the mountain, and on both sides are row upon row of small shops, cafes, restaurants and so on. When you come here, you can sit quietly in the lakeside garden and enjoy the beautiful scenery, or you can blend into the medieval alleys to find wine and delicacies. You might as well stay for one night to enjoy the magnificent scenery of sunrise and sunset.
M32***23There are two parks in Tremezzina: Parco Comunale (Parco Comunale) and the more exquisite Villa Carlotta (Villa Carlotta) park. The famous Villa Carlotta was built in 1690. Carlota is the name of a beautiful woman, and the manor is a dowry given to her by her mother. The white villa by the lake has now been transformed into a small museum, which houses a copy of Love and Psyche by the Italian sculptor Antonio Canova (the original is in the Louvre in Paris).

There are few places as romantic as Lake Como, and even fewer lakeside towns as charming as Bellagio. Called "the Pearl of Lake Como", Bellagio is a perfect destination for a relaxing vacation with pizzazz and enchanting panoramas.
Bellagio is situated in a picturesque position on Lake Como, on the tip of the promontory which juts into the lake and separates it into two branches, with Como to the west and Lecco to the east. The town has always had an aristocratic dignity, and has drawn respite seekers for centuries. It has an elegant air yet with the water sports and mountain activities, is not a stuffy place, either.
The most ancient part of Bellagio occupies that area at the end of the promontory and is known as 'the Borgo'. It is a pretty combination of stairways lined with colorful shops with the finest quality merchandise and excellent restaurants, little piazzas and sidewalk cafes. Numerous little characteristic hamlets are scattered both along the lake and the hilly slopes above the Borgo, and there are walking paths connecting them. Arcades with shops below, flower boxes, decorative iron balconies and cobbled lanes make for an attractive atmosphere. Bellagio retains Old World appeal.
Because it has been a getaway for wealthy dignitaries, there are many villas around the town, some with spectacular gardens. Don't miss Villa Melzi's garden with scultpures and the park of Villa Serbelloni. A scenic spot you'll want to visit is Punt Spartivento, literally "divide the wind" where the promontory comes to a point in the lake. Stop for a drink in the warm wood-laid historic Caffe Rossi, which retains the fittings and charm of a by-gone age, with tables under the arcade. The Museum of Navigational Instruments is an interesting stop, and there are plenty of water sports, boat trips and hikes in the hills to enjoy, too. A tourist train lets you see a bit further afield, or you can catch a ferry to Varenna for a day.
very beautiful place especially in the morning. Not a lot of tourist. Good place for shopping. Boats to Menaggio every half an hour.
