We offer you 4 different tour routes. Tours begin in the morning to ensure the best temperatures and sunlight in order to easily complete the route.
We launch from the Harbour of Pescallo which was formerly the fisherman's district. This lovely quaint harbour is surrounded by an astonishing lake view in the shadow of Serbelloni's hill.
We head along Bellagio's west and then the east coast, taking the opportunity to discover hidden nature spots and the beautiful architecture and gardens of the Patrician villas that you'll encounter along the promenade of Bellagio.

Bellagio, called "Pearl of Lake Como" lies on the peninsula edge looking north, west and east of Lake Como and offering a grand panoramic view.
The town is surrounded by marvelous patrician villas, including the Villa Serbelloni, now the property of the Rockefeller foundation, Villa Trotti, Villa Gerli, Villa Melzi d'Eril and its beautiful botanical and historic gardens.
The town center deserves a visit for the atmosphere, the San Giacomo cathedral built in the romantic style. There's the "Punta Spartivento" view on lake Como's northern side, the promenade and it's bars in Belle Epoque style, along with lots of handcrafts, fashion and Lake Como's famous silk shops.
