Lake Como, which the locals know as Lago di Como or Lago Lario, is a stunning lake nestling in the shadowy lap of the snowy Rhaetian Alps. The lake is 146 sq kilometers wide and shaped like an upside-down Y. Its irregular shoreline is dotted with scattered villages. One of these is Bellagio, an exquisite, tourist-oriented town at the only junction of the ‘Y’. If in Bellagio, you can take one of the many daily tours by boat out to the lake.

Surrounding the lake is also a bouquet of splendid Italian gardens and villas that make wonderfully refreshing full-day or half-day tours. Right across from Bellagio is the lovely town of Tremezzo, where you can tour the Villa Carlotta. Tourists visit Villa Carlotta to look at the excellent botanical garden and stroll along the attractive waterfront. Villa Carlotta combines over 8 hectares of open parkland with an interesting villa-museum.
Another garden that deserves a visit is the Villa del Balbianello, in the Lenno commune of Como province. It overlooks the lake and sits on the tip of a little wooded peninsula. The terraced gardens of Balbianello are elaborate and famous across the world.Bellagio itself is home to the Villa Melzi Garden, which is a gorgeous white-columned classical villa with a garden crossed by winding paths. In April and May the blooming rhododendrons and azaleas, the Japanese pond, the maple and cedar trees punctuated with Roman statues and Egyptian sculptures give the gardens a romantic atmosphere. If you want to visit one of the most original landscaped gardens of Lombardy, seek out Villa Bagatti Valsecchi that lies between Menaggio and Porlezza. The terraced gardens dating from the seventeenth century create a balcony overhanging a steep cliff. Two courtyards and a tower complete the stunning location.
