Garden Art Museum
A strip of gardens that line the lakeshore on the Bellagio peninsula, i Giardini di Villa Melzi is a manicured landscape that was once the playground of Francesco Melzi d'Eril, duke of Lodi and the vice president of the Italian Republic in the early 19th century. The Neoclassical villa and chapel set off the colors of the garden. A greenhouse, called the orangery, is home to a collection of artifacts from the Napoleonic period and other rare archaeological finds. On the other side of the grounds, bamboo surrounds a chapel to create a place quiet meditation.

  • Cosy garden to wander around in loops from low to up and around. Around every corner there is something to discover.

  • The Gardini di Villa Melzi is Grand maintained and cut to size. It convinces by its location on the water and by its diversity. There are also many beautiful, shady spots. Must be seen in Bellagio!

  • The garden was beautiful but not really so impressive as I thought it would be. Nevertheless the walk is perfect for a hot, sunny day. Entrance fee is € 6 and it took me around an hour to walk around ...  more »

  • Wonderful garden on lake beach. It must be visited during your Bellagio holiday. Take your time. You will feel a professional photographer....because with any camera colors and landscape will be amazing! Relax and enjoy!
  • Wonderful collection of specimen plants from all over the world, planted long ago and cultivated over time. Best viewed from early to mid April when the thick azalea bushes are blooming (the timing depends on the weather). The villa is still owned by a family and is not open to view. The villa itself has an interesting history. All done in truly refined Italian style.
  • Incredible! Built in 1800s so more access to flora from all over the world. Massive Sequoias from California, Japan, China, pine trees from different parts of Mexico. Luxuriant and peaceful
  • A rather small but very beautiful park!
  • Nice gardens to stop and have lunch in when in Bellagio. Great views over the lake with plenty of seating
