Bello Bellagio

 

 

You will read that Bellagio is often referred to as the pearl of the lake located in the ‘heart of the lake’ (Menaggio, Varenna and Bellagio), but there is much more to Bellagio than a charming little village.

Bellagio was always seen as a strategic point throughout the centuries due to the fact that from it the towns of Varenna, Menaggio, Tremezzo, etc., can easily be seen and so any visitors (wanted or unwanted) could be spotted before they reached Bellagio.  Likewise, the uninterrupted views towards the north of the lake also meant that travellers from as far as Colico and Sorico could be seen long before they reached Bellagio.  Today all visitors from north, south, east or west are welcomed and its beauty attracts visitors from all over the world
