There must be a reason why Bellagio
is named “the Pearl of the Lake”. The reason is its setting in the middle of the Lake Como, where the main branch splits in the two branches of Como and Lecco
. It is also considered one of the most romantic villages in the world as it is set between the lake and its narrow mediaeval streets full of shops, bars and restaurants. The road from Lecco to Bellagio is incredibly scenic
. Another way to reach Bellagio
is by ferry from Varenna
or by boat from Lecco especially in summertime, to discover the beautiful places and hidden villas which can only be seen from the lake.
