Destination guide

Discover the Pearl of Lake Como at Bellagio

Enjoy a relaxing getaway in Bellagio, a charming village nestled between the southern branches of Italy's Lake Como. One of the country's top vacation destinations and arguably one of the prettiest spots in Europe, the village's majestic architecture, quaintly cobbled laneways and classy boutiques, not to mention the mesmerizing lakeside setting, enthrall travelers. Whether you're hanging out with family and friends or making memories with your other half, once you've found your ideal Bellagio vacation rental, you'll find this tiny village with a big personality offers an idyllic setting for a little downtime.

Things to do

Discover Bellagio's beautiful suburbs

Bellagio's hamlets and waterfront settlements can be fun to explore on a sunny day. Pescallo, an endearing little fishing hamlet, has a lovely waterside restaurant where travelers can savor views of the lake's Lecco branch over lunch. From there, it's a pleasant stroll past the grand Villa Giulia to San Giovanni where local kids hang out on the harbor wall and the town square features a shrine to the Madonna of Lourdes. A visit to the nearby Museum of Navigational Instruments is an interesting way to spend a few hours before heading back to your Bellagio vacation rental.


Explore elegant Bellagio

There are few better places to start exploring Bellagio than the village's main street, Via Garibaldi, an elegant stretch of independent boutiques, pavement cafes serving up generous helpings of fruity gelato and the main square, Piazza San Giacomo. A highlight of a visit to the square is the chance to marvel at the frescoes and statues that grace the interior of the Lombard Romanesque Basilica di San Giacomo, although, between March and November, groups of 6 or more can also head to the tourist office across the way to arrange a walking tour of the sumptuous 18th-century Villa Serbelloni Park.


Enjoy Bellagio all year round

Balmy temperatures, more than 200 days of sunshine each year and mild winters mean that a stay in a Bellagio vacation rental is on the cards all year round. Sunseekers, however, will want to time their break over the summer months of July and August when temperatures can reach the upper 80s and the lake provides a gorgeous backdrop for watersports of all flavors. Although many of the village's most popular attractions will be closed for the season, winter breaks offer the best deals on rentals and the surrounding mountains provide a chance to ski amid undeniably glorious surroundings.

Natural features

Soak up the scenery near Bellagio

Lake Como takes center stage here, so a cruise will likely make it onto most visitors must-do list. Excursions are typically available all year but are most enjoyable from May through to September. Taking the ferry down to Como town is an option for a day trip if you have a little more time on your hands, although it's well worth skipping the return ferry journey in favor of a scenic bus ride back to your rental. Should a beach day be on the agenda, top up your tan on the rocky coastline at Loppia.
