TOWN: We are in Bellagio, in the hamlet of San Giovanni, a stone's throw from the lake, the beach and the park (equipped for children). The center is 2 km away (20 minutes on foot / 5 minutes by car).
At 200 meters there is a cafeteria, which also sells some groceries. Supermarkets are 1km away. Nearby there are some excellent restaurants: Mella (250m); River side (600m, on the beach); Alle Darsene and Silvio (700m).
BELLAGIO: also known as 'La Perla del Lario' is famous for its particular position in the center of Lake Como! The historic center, called borgo, occupies the most extreme part of the promontory, it is an endless succession of shops and lively bars. The other suburbs rise on the hill and on the two shores of the lake. We are in the hamlet of San Giovanni, a small fishing village that has kept its ancient charm! The marina, the beaches, the well-kept park, and the characteristic streets are always quiet and safe. Visiting our country means walking up and down the streets, fatigue will be rewarded with unforgettable views and panoramas. Do not miss the Gardens of Villa Melzi, the beautiful park of Villa Serbelloni, and the lakeside promenade, until reaching the Punta Spartivento, where the lake is divided into three branches.
SPORT: it is possible to rent canoes, kayaks and paddle. Enjoy water skiing, wake boarding and wake surfing. Trekking and many excursions. On Mount San Primo (15 km) the bike park and the ski slopes seasonally alternate! In 20 minutes you can reach the Jungle Raider Park, with paths on the trees of all levels.
In Bellagio it is possible to RENT Vespa scooters, bikes (electric or not), cars, and boats (with or without a driver).
ON THE LAKE: from Bellagio you can easily visit all the towns of the lake by taking a boat trip, I recommend visiting Varenna, Tremezzo for its Villa Carlotta and Lenno and the famous Villa Balbianello.
GITE near and far: By car you can reach Magreglio and the Ghisallo (famous for the cycling museum), the lakes of Pusiano, Segrino and Alserio, very beautiful for a walk or a picnic. The towns of Lecco and Como are 25 and 30km away.
If you are a traveler from Bellagio you can plan some interesting visits. In just over an hour you can reach Switzerland, Milan, Bergamo, Sondrio, Valsassina and Valtellina! You can also go to Bormio for the thermal baths, to Livigno for extra-customs shopping, or to St. Moritz. And from November to April, in a couple of hours you can get to Madesimo to ski or rent a snowmobile!
I am available to give you advice and directions!

It runs from late March to October, with a few daily runs. The BELLAGIO center stop (2km) is in operation all year round. You can take the boat (or hydrofoil, faster) for all the towns of the lake or the ferry (also by car) that connects Bellagio, Varenna, Cadenabbia and Menaggio.
