What to expect
  • Head to the Bellagio ferry terminal to start your tour. Meet your guide and set off to explore Bellagio’s historic center. As you walk, hear about the town with its noble mansions and villas that look out over Lake Como. The town is often called Italy’s most beautiful village, with a position that boasts enviable views over all branches of the lake.  Stop for a look around Punta Spartivento, a park with some of the finest lake and mountain views, and perhaps meet some of the local fishermen to learn about the lake fish.  Continue with a stroll along the stone walkways to the peaceful fishing hamlet of Pescallo, then head into the hills to Aureggio. Work your way past gardens, olive groves, and Romanesque churches to the Loppia harbor where some rare Larian gondolas await. These small lake boats from the 19th century once carried food and animals around the lake.  From the sea front, you’ll head to the dreamy botanical gardens at Villa Melzi. Then, finish on a high note as you end your tour on the terrace of the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni.

A great tour with an excellent tour guide
Oct 2019
We had a great time learning the history of Bellagio and its customs all the while navigating through the back streets of this wonderful city. The lunch was lovely and walking through the gardens was an excellent way to end the day.

Very, very overpriced
Jul 2019 • Family
Our tour guide was very nice and answered questions well when asked. We were a party of 4 people doing the 2.5 hour walk around Bellagio with a lunch at a Michelin-listed restaurant. The tour was 2.5 hours and included a 6.50 euro ticket per person to some villa gardens. We were asked to rate the your before lunch and did so willingly expecting that the $650 the tour cost would be validated by a great lunch. It wasn't. The restaurant we ate at had very, very reasonable prices (approx Euro 15 per main). Our food was so cheap it wasn't even on the menu. We were offered 2 mini bruschetta and a choice of pasta with some tomatoes (only) or gnocchi with olive and tomato. One glass of wine, one glass of water. We met a couple of Americans on the tour who were lovely but we felt completely and utterly ripped off and could not get rid of that feeling. We travel a lot and go on walking/food tours frequently and this is the first time we have felt utterly robbed. Do not recommend at all.

Dear guest, thanks for your feedback which we treasure. I would like to point out that this tour costs Euro 95 per person (which I believe accounts for 425 USD and not 650). The price is gross and, as you booked through a platform, I believe you are aware we pay high commissions on it and get a net amount which is significantly lower. The tour has a guaranteed departure with a minimum of 2 participants, a guarantee which we keep by losing money on reservations made by only 2, which is often the case. The Euro 95 gross amount includes the services of a licensed English speaking tour guide which, as most professional services - we do not go for non licensed cheaper solutions - is quite expensive. The guide has taken you for a 2.5 hours tour to discover the hidden corners of Bellagio and surrounding hamlets, a tour which we believe is quite unique. The price also includes tickets to the botanical gardens of Villa Melzi: not Some villa gardens, but the gardens which won the prize for the best privately owned gardens in Italy. Let us talk food: we chose the one we believe is the best restaurant in Bellagio, a MIchelin listed one, lakefront located in an off-the-beaten path hamlet, a restaurant which is the favourite of some VIPs such as Mick Jagger and George Clooney. Mus most of all, food there is delicious. A full meal at this restaurant costs, I believe you took a look at the menu, at least 60 per person not including beverage. What we offer there is a bruschetta starter and a choice of pasta or gnocchi, a glass of wine, water and espresso, a menu which is described on the page where you made the reservation. I hope this message clears the matter and, again, we are very sorry you were disappointed but we really really do our best to offer the best experiences in the Lake Como area and spend long hours discussing, tasting, trying, walking round to find out more and more new and unique experiences.

Great walking tour
We had a great morning with Allesandro, exploring Bellagio on foot ending with a delicious lunch at Melzi. The walking was challenging at times but the leisurely pace ensured we enjoyed the overall experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable, professional and spoke excellent English. Thank you, we thought this was good value for money and a great way to see Bellagio.
