Bellagio

Bellagio is one of the most famous and popular locations on Lake Como. If you look at the map, you can immediately grasp its peculiarity.

In fact, Lake Como, despite being a single lake at the bottom, is divided into 2 branches which then rejoin towards its middle. The two branches of Lake Como are the Lecco branch, on the right which ends with the city of Lecco on its tip, and the Como branch on the left which ends with the city of Como, also located on its final tip.

Bellagio is located right at the point of reunion of these 2 branches, in the internal tip extending towards the lake.

Bellagio has a beautiful lakeside promenade; even the center of Bellagio, with its narrow streets, is waiting to be discovered.

Varenna

Varenna is a very characteristic town on Lake Como and although it is not very large, it offers tourists many things to visit and do, such as a visit to the Villa Monastero or the Vezio Castle.

Varenna is also an excellent place for those who want to take a walk on the lake, as the walkway over the lake, although not very long, offers the possibility of taking a nice panoramic walk.

But what perhaps most fascinates me about Varenna is its profile of colorful houses dominated first by the promontory and then just behind by the mountains. The best way to see this beautiful image is to take the boat. In fact, from the boat, you can genuinely fully appreciate the beauty of Varenna.
