travel from Belagio to Riva del Garda

by plewy4

Hello, I need to go from Belagio(or Varenna) to Riva del Garda in as quick a time as possible via public transportation. So far the best I have been able to come up with is bus to Lecco, train to Brescia, bus to Riva. Does this make sense? Any other options? Thanks so much for any help. Sincerely, peter

you wrote via public transportation so it makes sense. At lesat a bus to Bergamo, then train and bus.
It would have no sense a direct service, for who? I don think many people do need to move from one lake to an other.
why don't you rent a car? the way is easy.

Travel Tips for Bellagio

Small & desert

by mauro_pd

For sure this is what can be called a touristic spot ... but I was there in January and the only shops open were a bar and a souvenirs one. Moreover, also the parking fee collector was closed !
As sometimes happens these "conditions" make the visitor more connected to deepness emotions and feelings ... and this was the case as well.
... so connected that I forgot to take pix !!!!!! It's a sad memory actually; Villa Melzi is a big building now completely abandoned, partially destroyed and ruined.
Sometimes it's not so easy to understand how these stuff can happen, but if you go there (trust me) u'll be disappointed !!!
Other nice parts are the short walk beside the lake in the main square and a tiny pedestrian street climbing the hill.

Giradini di villa Melzi

by Aurorae

Bellagio is also full of colours in the autumn, and since there are many wonderful villas, you'd be amazed with a variety of flora and the colours they change throughout the year. These are the gardens of Villa Melzi, one of the most famous villas in Bellagio.

Villa Carlotta ~ Princess' Wedding Present

by starship

The famous Villa Carlotta occupies one of the most gorgeous settings facing the Lago di Como in the village of picturesque village of Tremezzo. The Villa is named for the daughter of Princess Marianne of Prussia who purchased it in 1856 as a wedding present for her daughter Carlotta and son-in-law, Prince George of Sax-Meiningen. The new couple were thoughtful owners & expanded the original gardens, and paid particular attention to the planting of a more exotic variety of plants, flowering trees, and even palms and eucalyptus. The gardens are particularly spectacular in early spring when the azaleas and rhododendrons are in bloom. Too bad for us, we were a full month early to see any of this from the lake.

In 1915, the Italian government seized the villa and from that point on the villa was deemed state property and became a public museum devoted to neoclassical art including both paintings and sculpture. Two of its most famous works are "Love and Psyche" by Canova and "Mars and Venus" by Acquisti.

Viewing the Villa Carlotta from Lago di Como gave me a good opportunity for taking pictures of its imposing edifice as a whole, but wasn't close enough to see the outstanding detail of the exquisite rod iron gates. (Click on the picture for a larger image.) The golden "C" topped by a crown in the middle of the gate is not a reference to Carlotta, but to "Clerici", the family who the Villa was originally built for. On the highest level of the Villa, notice the enormous door and balcony, and just above it the grand clock. Most pictures make it appear that the Villa is white, but when I saw it, it seemed to be a beautiful pale shade of pink or mauve.

The Villa is open from April through September daily from 9 am to 6pm; the shoulder months of March and October brings reduced hours: 9 - 11:30am and 2 - 4:30pm.

If arriving by lake, follow the lakeside promenade north where the statues line the lakefront and you will see the exquisite scrolling rod-iron gate.

The Villa at Balbianello

by starship

The stately and unmistakable Villa Balbianello occupies the end of the Lovedo peninsula at Lenno. Like other villas, it has been the property of many owners but its most well known name is derived from old owners, the Balbiano's. It is also known, though to a lesser extent, as "Villa Arconati" which is the name of another owner.

The building which dates to about 1787, sits on a rocky outcrop on the lake, and is distinguishable by the gnarly trees -- they were bare when the accompanying photo was taken which I thought made it even more memorable. The twin bell towers attached to the little church and convent also make this villa very distinquishable I think. Inside the villa there is a collection of vintage prints, furnishings, tapestries and objects collected by the last individual owner, Count Guido Monzino, who collected voraciously during his explorations and travel. who bequeathed the property to the Italian National Trust in 1988.

There is some conflicting information as to whether the interior of the villa is open to tours. However, the gardens are open for tours from mid-March to the end of October. It is closed on Mondays and Wednesdays but please call for more exact information and details.

Rental Cars

You can hire a car from Milan Railway Station to drive to Bellagio or hire a car at Bellagio.

The hire car companies are found on the ground level at Milan main central railway station. All major car companies operate from here. It was in the middle of renovation when we purchased our hire car and thrifty car office was difficult to find. Hopefully, the mess has now been completed.
