We visited the Gisrdini di Villa Melli earlier today and were disappointed to find out when we got to the entrance that the grounds are only open from April - October (09:30-17:30). The grounds looked immaculate.

Visited this place in September 2016' It is beautiful and I highly recommend to anyone who visits Belaggio. Lots of different species of plants and took some gorgeous photos. Need comfortable shoes and bring water with you.

These gardens are well kept and not extremely big. Expect to spend at least 2-3 hours to walk around and experience the nature with wonderful views of Lake Como. The entry fee is reasonable.

Beautiful gardens with assorted trees in full color and majestic views of Lake Como and the surrounding mountains. It is definitely worth the small admittance fee as it added so much ambience and nostalgia to our stay in Bellagio.

A delightful respite and so fitting for Bellagio. Beautiful gardens, tranquil views, benches to stop and rest. Well maintained. We opted for a walk through her on our way to a restaurant beyond the far end and throroughly enjoyed the experience. Entrance fee is very reasonable and very worthwhile.

Right on Lake Como, just next to downtown Bellagio, along the lake, is this beautiful garden. You need to go along the marina in Bellagio, and then walk to the gardens, along Como, and you will see nothing but beautiful plants, sculpture, swans and trees, and more. Start around 11am, and take an hour or two for this walk, stay... More

We visited here while in Bellagio. The gardens are kept in immaculate condition and the entrance fee of €6.50 is well justified. It offers beautiful views of the lake and the autumnal colours were mesmerising.

We visited the gardens on an overcast, misty day in October and they were still beautiful. The colors in the Japanese maples around the water garden were astounding.
