Bellagio

Lake Como is shaped like an upside down letter Y. To drive around the entire lake by car would take 4 hours. There are also fast hydrofoils that can transport you from Como, which is at the southwest leg to Bellagio, where the two legs meet. There are many charming towns to visit and explore along the shore.

There are so many attractive, charming towns along the lake. Indeed, I picked beautiful Bellagio as my home base. What an excellent decision – the pearl of Lake Como. We simply walked onto a ferry everyday to explore the uniqueness of other towns.
