There is no better way to see a new country or place than by bicycle. If you travel by car, train or bus, it’s like watching a beautiful movie pass by. If you travel by bike, you’re in the movie. The enchanting lakeside village of Bellagio renowned for its picturesque houses, colorful steep stone alleys and grandiose villas has attracted artists, poets and the rich for centuries.
During our 3 hour e-bike tour we will explore Bellagio’s historic center and its marvelous and characteristic surroundings. Our first stop is Limonta a small hamlet on the Eastern branch of Lake Como, which hides in its proximity a small and graceful church, hanging on the cliffs, a unique place to take memorable pictures. Next we cycle on to Punta Spartivento, the extremity of the peninsula of Bellagio which represents the heart of the lake, dividing the Como branch from that of Lecco allowing us to admire the superb views of the lake’s three branches against a towering alpine background.
Pedaling through the alleys of the hamlet flanking the magnificent gardens of Villa Serbelloni we will reach the fishing village of Pescallo another hidden gem not to be missed. Moving on over the hills to Aureggio, the upper part of the peninsula, crossing lush gardens and olive groves we pass by noble villas and Romanesque churches descending to the port of Loppia, home to rare examples of 19th century Larian Gondolas.
The tour continues to our last stop, a family owned hotel and restaurant over Bellagio, where you will be served typical tastings with a glass of fresh local wine. The magnificent gardens of Villa Melzi are only a few steps away and you will be free to explore them using the complimentary tickets provided by our guide, and relax while taking in the colors and atmosphere of this enchanting place.
We like to keep things informal and familiar. Our tour groups are limited, usually no larger than 8 people, to ensure that you have a personal experience.
