travel from Milan/Bellagio

by Daviegirl

My husband & I will be arriving in Milan via train and plan to go directly to Bellagio. We plan to stay 3 nights at the Grand Hotel Villa Sirbelloni --- any comments on if it is worth the price and if 3 days will be too long? We plan to rent a car from Milan & drive to/from Milan train station keeping car for stay -- is a car more of a nuisance than asset there. We will be going on via train from Bellagio to Venice.

Re: travel from Milan/Bellagio

Driving in Milan will be 'interesting', I suspect. There is a ZTL (restricted traffic zone) monitored by CCTV cameras with automatic fines (taken directly from your card, sometimes several months later).

And Milan traffic can be very congested indeed.

Although Bellagio itself does not have a railway station it is quite near to Malpensa. It might make more sense to take the new Malpensa airport train from Milan Centrale (45 minutes) and then pick up your car from the airport.

Train times, details and fares in English here;

Search for 'Malpensa aeroporto'.

I haven't driven the area so cannot comment as to whether a car is essential. Those who like cars and driving will say it is, of course.

But there are local buses if you wish to explore further afield without a car:

and the lake ferries:

We've driven through most of Italy, including Rome so are not fearful of the traffic. My concern was parking in the small towns, we can pay to park overnight at the hotel. We are definitely not bus people but will probably use the ferries for some scenic excursions. Any first hand experience with the Grand Hotel Villa Sirbelloni??? Your comments would be appreciated.

Travel Tips for Bellagio

Internet and Ice Cream!

by Peterodl

The Il Sorbetto Internet Cafe offers the cheapest rates for internet in Bellagio.
They have 2-3 computers with high-speed internet connections available for use for about 4 Euros/hour.
You can grab yourself a sorbet and surf the web at the same time! What could be better than to gloat to your friends that you have ice cream and are in one of the most beautiful areas in the world all at the same time.

Alps

by Aurorae

From Bellagio you can see the Alps. Naturally, as entire lake is surrounded by Alps! But, if you are at the shore you can enjoy the beautiful view of Alps coming out of the water, and if the peaks are cverd in snow it is exquisite!

Romantic Bellagio

by Aurorae

Bellagio is full of romantic corners. You can't experience and appreciate them as much in the high touristy season and weekends, so get out there on a week day and explore. You might be surprised...

Once the Home of the Duke & Duchess of Windsor

by starship

During our boat tour of Lago di Como, the tour guide/boat pilot told us that the estate in the accompanying picture once belonged to the Duke and Duchess of Windsor of England's royal family. The Duke actually was to be coronated King Edward VIII of England but gave up the throne in 1938 to marry a commoner, Wallis Warfield Simpson (an American divorcee).

As hard as I tried, I have not been able to find any additional information about the estate such as any current names given to the property, the years that the Duke & Duchess owned the property, etc. If someone has information about this place, please drop me a note.

As you can see, although it does not appear to be built in the same fashion as other historic villas on the lake, the grounds and landscaping are simply gorgeous. I particularly love the Italian cypress trees.

Menaggio

by starship

Menaggio, another magical name you hear in the lore of Lago di Como! Situated almost directly opposite or due west of Varenna, the waterfront promenade of Menaggio resembles the Mediterranean more so than what you think of as northern Italy. The beautiful waterfront promenade is graced by scrolled ironwork and lamplights, swaying palms and a profusion of flowers in summer and spring. Piazza Garibaldi spills down to the waterfront, and the little marina abounding in fishing and sailing boats. As with other little villages surrounding the lake, all avenues seem to lead uphill.

Both of the professors I work for have stayed twice for conferences at the remarkable Villa Mylus Vigoni which is perched on the green slopes of Menaggio. The Villa, its art collections, gardens and museum were bequeathed to the German Federal Republic by its last owner, and is now the setting (like the Villa Serbelloni) for high level conferences, etc. Guided tours are given.

The only building I had time to go in was the church of Santa Maria, also called the church of the crucifixes, just off the piazza on a narrow, pedistrian street. Small with a beautiful rosetta window, the church was cozy and their was a slight perfume of incense in the air. I looked for any written information about the church but there was none to be found. I later found that a plaque embedded in the outside wall that I had been looking at was a memorial tablet of Lucio Minicio Esorato, a Roman thought to be the founder of the village.
