Start your exploration from Piazza Mazzini and go to the enchanting Park of Villa Serbelloni, which boasts amazing views of Lake Como. It is one of the most famous parks in the world, featuring paths, terraces and splendid landscape architecture. The park is open for guided tours only.

The visit continues with the picturesque historic hamlets of Bellagio, specifically Pescallo and San Giovanni, two stops that allow you to discover a special and unusual Bellagio. Pescallo is an ancient fishing village peacefully overlooking the lake, where you can walk through small squares and pretty districts up to the small port. San Giovanni is also a small lakeside village, where we advise you not to miss the Museum of Navigation Instruments. An exhibition with over 200 objects used by man over the centuries for finding their way during navigation: telescopes, compasses, sundials, marine chronometers and much more. The itinerary also allows visitors to delve deeper into the living conditions on nineteenth-century ships.

The gardens of Villa Melzi, the final stage in this day of discovery of Bellagio, are a triumph of flowers that change colour in every season, with native trees, exotic plants, sculptural groups and a Japanese lake with water lilies.

At the end of the visit, a short 10-minute walk will take you back to the centre of Bellagio, otherwise you can take the tourist train departing from the hamlet of Loppia.
