Bellagio is home to restaurants, shops, markets, gardens, parks, and water sport opportunities. The main sights are St. James Basilica, Villa Melzi, and Villa Serbelloni.
Nearby Attractions: During your stay, visit some of the many villages along the shoreline. A ferry boat service connects all the major towns by the lake, from the northeast town of Colico, to the most southern Como including the two branches of the lake. Como is perfect for a day's outing. Sights in Como include the Duomo, the austere church of San Abbondio, the Piazza S. Fedele (with many 400-year-old buildings), and the Basilica, one of the masterpieces of the maestri comacini (Como masters). Before leaving, be sure to take the funicular up to Brunate-- a small village with a spectacular view. While on Lake Como, you'll discover that the cuisine is based primarily on fish. Specialties include misultitt (fish desiccated in containers called misolte) and soused fish (fried and then pickled), along with more traditional dishes like rice with perch or smoked trout.
