The Gardens of Villa Melzi d’Eril: the colours shine above Lake Como
On the lakeshore in Bellagio, this villa was built for Duke Francesco Melzi d’Eril and today is still a private property. The spectacular garden is open to the public for visiting. It was achieved by adapting the ground with terraces and rises, adding tropical and exotic essences, valuable sculptures among which stands the famous group with Dante and Beatrice, a Moorish temple and a Japanese pond.
The majesty of the villa faces into the lake has a soft image above the colours of the gardens. The building, in neo-classical style, is elegant without frills, with regular and mild forms. The park, entrusted who has already projected Monza Park, positioned trees as to be local. The exotic corners, the Japanese pond, the basalt statue are elements that coming up along the route: this is the equilibrium in the gardens of the villa in Bellagio.
During the springtime the great gala of colours starts: the flowerings of azaleas and rhododendrons create a feast of shades above the fields and slopes of the park. At the end of the route, there is an enchanting chapel in front of the lake.
The access to the park is allowed from march to the end of october (09.30-18.30).
