A peaceful walk under the arcades of Bellagio is all it takes to gain an idea of the elegant and extremely stress-free nature of this attractive little town resting on the shores of Lake Como. Facing on to the peninsula which divides the lake in the two branches of Como and Lecco, Bellagio has, for centuries, been the chosen holiday destination for those in search of a truly relaxing vacation. From the pier, faithfully rebuilt according to the late 20th century original, visitors board one of the many boats sailing around Lake Como, a trip that allows passengers to admire a charming view of Bellagio from the lake. No tour of Bellagio can be considered complete without having first visited Villa Serbelloni, a fascinating property which boasts one of Italy’s most beautiful lakeside parks. Within the villa, the remains of one of Bellagio’s oldest Romanesque churches can be seen. Together with Villa Serbelloni’s Church of San Pietro, the Basilica of San Giacomo and Oratory San Giorgio feature high on the list of houses of worship to visit in Bellagio.
