The Gardens


The Gardens of Villa Melzi d’Eril, on Lake Como at Bellagio, are a harmonious example of the English-style garden, situated along the East/West shore of the lake, at the feet of the Villa of the same name.


Built in the early 1800s with the contribution of distinguished artists, craftsmen, decorators and architects, it has always been a site of rare beauty, of inspiration for writers, artists and poets, a place that people who come to admire the perfect balance between plants, history and landscape fall in love with.


The Gardens are open to the public from March to October, and also welcome school groups for guided educational activities in Italian and English thanks to our collaboration with the educational team of The Original History Walks®. For private visitors, guided tours and artistic workshops can be booked by sending us an email at


The Gardens can be visited following botanical or historical and artistic points of interest, including the Museum.
