129 Reviews

The stately Villa Melzi d’Eril sits at the edge of Lake Como in the picturesque town of Bellagio, while the peaceful Villa Melzi Gardens(Giardini di Villa Melzi) stretch out around it, hugging the lake. Both the villa and gardens were built in the early 19th century as the summer home for an Italian duke. The gardens were designed in the English style with statues, and the grounds include a traditional orangery (which today houses a museum) and a small chapel. Inside the museum, you'll find a bust of Napoleon and a set of ceremonial keys to the city of Milan. The small chapel is where the Melzi family is entombed.

While the villa itself is not open to the public, there are lots of walking paths through the gardens, ideal for getting away from the crowds in Bellagio. Some of the paths run right along the lake, with blooming plants on the opposite side and benches placed along the path so you can stop and enjoy the view for awhile. Visit the gardens on a full-day walking and boating tour of Lake Como to explore the nearby city of Varenna, taste local olive oil, and enjoy a boat ride across the lake.

Lake Como and its villas tour

Lake Como and its villas tour

The soothing and elegant atmosphere of Lake Como is inimitable. Since the Roman age, it has been a leisure location for aristocrats and still, due to the quite impervious configuration, it has not been reached by the mass tourism. From the Renaissance to the Napoleonic age, wealthy families, clergymen and politicians have built here their summer residences. This exclusive guided tour will take you along the lakeside, to discover some of these art treasures: Villa del Balbianello, Villa Erba, Villa Carlotta and Villa Melzi d'Eril, also famous for its garden. You will be astonished by their beauty and by the harmony between architecture and landscape. After just one day, a light will be shining forever in your eyes and your soul.
