Take a look at a
of the Lake Como area, and you’ll notice that Bellagio is centrally situated right at the fork of the lake. Its location means it’s easy to explore the lake by boat, car, bus, on foot, or a combination of the four.
By Ferry or Boat: Bellagio offers several options for visitors who want to travel by boat. Leisurely boat tours are perfect for anyone who wants to spend a pleasant day out on the lake, slowly drifting from town to town. Those just looking to get from point A to point B should pay for a faster catamaran, and those who want to bring their car should take advantage of the car ferries that run twice a day from Bellagio up to Verenna, Cadenabbia and Menaggio.
By Bus: There is bus service connecting Bellagio to the town of Como on the southwestern tip of the lake, as well as to Lecco at the southeastern tip. Both bus rides should take slightly over an hour.
By Car: Many roads within the vicinity of Lake Como are narrow, but as traffic is very light, this isn't usually a problem. There is ample parking, and driving yourself is generally faster than the bus.
On Foot: The town of Bellagio itself is easily walkable, but contains many steep cobblestone streets. Bring comfortable shoes!
