Lake Como, Italy: Bellagio and Varenna
More info about travel to the Italian Lakes: Lake Como — lined with palm trees and elegant pastel-colored villas, crowned by snowcapped mountains, and criss-crossed by a fleet of ferries and hydrofoils — is a great place to take a break from the intensity of Italy that one finds further south. Bellagio is a classy combination of Old World elegance and new world luxury. Varenna has a romantic waterside promenade, a tiny harbor, and inviting narrow lanes.

A Walking Tour Of Bellagio, Lake Como, Italy
A Walking Tour Of Bellagio on Lake Como in the Italian Lakes. A light-hearted morning walk around the town.
Our self guided walking tour of the beautiful town of Bellagio on the shores of Lake Como, Italy. Looking at the old church, the main square and the narrow medieval streets of the town centre.
Sitting in the centre of the lake the drive to get there is quite interesting, it’s not the widest or straightest of roads. The best way to get there is by ferry from across the lake.
This was the Lake Como town which inspired by the Bellagio resort in Las Vegas, we’ve been to both and they are VERY different experiences.

Lake Como | Bellagio, Varenna, Villa Balbianello
If you have already watched the first two Rome Vlogs you will know that the next stop on our Mother-Daughter Italy trip was Lake Como. From Rome we took the train to Milano, then a train to Varenna, then a ferry to Bellagio which is where we were staying. We enjoyed a lovely dinner at Suisse restaurant, and many delicious snacks and gelati! From Bellagio we took a day trip to Villa Balbianello of Lenno, which is where they filmed parts of Casino Royal and my personal favourite Star Wars (Episode II was featured here and it was known as Naboo). This was truly amazing to experience. We also visited the scenic Varenna for the day and had a lovely lunch at Bar Il Molo which was beautiful and delicious. We were so sad to leave lovely Lago di Como and wished we had more time there. Bellagio, Varenna, and Villa Balbianello of Lenno were truly stunning. It was our first time in Lake Como and it definitely won’t be our last! I hope you enjoy this vlog as much as we enjoyed making it. If you do please give it a “thumbs up” and don’t forget to check out my Italy playlist which I will link here:

LAKE COMO || A Day Trip
We wanted to spend a night around lake como but due to a limited time we decided to just do a day trip which gave us enough glimpse of the beautiful lake and its surrounding towns.
Check the guide at:
From Milano Centrale train station we took an hour train ride to Varenna-Esseno for only 6 euros.
It’s a beautiful little town just northeast of the famous Bellagio.
We then took a 15 minute ferry ride to Bellagio passing other amazing lakeside towns.
After arriving at Bellagio we were greeted by an elegant atmosphere where people just relax by the lakeside and champagne on their hand. Bellagio is also called the pearl of the lake. We definitely agree and the picturesque alleys and the site of the emerald colored lake did not disappoint us.
Next up we rode another ferry down to the City of Como which the lake was named from. It’s a bigger community than bellagio and sits at the southwestside of the lake near the italian-swiss border. It is surrounded by green ridge hills resulting in unparalleled natural scenery.
We then rode a furnicular that took us up to a little mountain community over looking the City of Como. It was an experience seeing the lake and the city.
As the dark quickly creeped in we made our way to San giovanni station to catch an hour train ride back to Milan.
Exploring lake como in just a day is doable if you have a limited time when you are around Milan. But if you really wanted to embrace the atmosphere and relax by the lakeside you should spend at least a night in one of the towns around the lake. But for us seeing this stunning lake just a short while considering our limited is enough. And if given a chance we would definitely go back and spend more time.

Bellagio - Lake Como - Italy

Italy Travel - Lake Como, Bellagio, Varenna
One cannot ask for a more appealing setting. Lake Como spills from the Swiss Alps to the Italian foothills, and is only a short train ride from Milan. Along it's shores we find beautiful palaces and delightful towns. We visited most by ferry. Bellagio is a fun, somewhat commercial city. Varenna is a quieter village with equally convenient access to all the major ferries and sights. While on the lake, be sure to see:
Bellagio, pure neo-classical excess
Sold to hotel developers in 1872
Villa Del Balbianello
Leno, 1787 on site of Franciscan monastery
for Cardinal Angelo Maria Durini,
Gardens 1796 by new owner Visconti
Varenna, built on monastery begun 1208,
Includes changes 1169, 1566, 18th-19th cent.

Ferry on Lake Como Italy between Bellagio, Varenna & Menaggio, via Fréjus Road Tunnel
We spent 2 nights in Lake Como Italy after our beautiful house sitting assignment in Conjux, France. It seems our European trip has been covering all the mountain lakes of Western Europe. Lake Annecy and Lake Bourget in France were hard to top, but Lake Como surely didn't disappoint. This is a much larger lake in comparison to Annecy or Bourget, with more towns accessible via Ferry.
PRO TRAVEL TIP: If you plan to go to a town such as Mennagio, Bellagio, Varenna or any town via ferry for that matter BUY THE DAY PASS. It seems the ticket counter operators are notorious for selling you two one-way tickets at 9.80 euros each, however a daily pass is available for 15 euros. You do the math, the Daily Pass makes way more sense, but you might not be informed of its existence, especially in Menaggio, where most people are based.
The ferry rides are usually crowded, but the views are spectacular. We covered all three towns in one day and lots of walking. Easily doable if you are on a time crunch.
