Lovely gardens and walk along lake como. Recommend having lunch nearby at Darsene Di Loppia- was our favorite meal in Bellagio- outside of the major tourist area in town.

Incredible grounds and vegetation. We saw olive trees, chestnut trees, persimmons tree, lime trees, and a whole bunch of trees and plants that we never would have thought would be here. Nice way to pass a couple of hours (€6.50 per person).

It was a nice stroll. Having been to many many gardens around the world this couldn’t compare. It was nice that it was along the lake though.

Splendid, splendid, splendid. Must see for every visitor. Lovely walk and so helpful that the specimen trees are named in various languages, including English. GJ

A visit to Bellagio is not complete without a walking tour of Villa Melzi. The beautifully manicured gardens coupled with the numerous variety of flowers and trees is complimented by amazing views, every way you turn.

No, you don’t. We simply went there and bought the tickets at the entry.
