Bellagio and Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo

I stayed at the three star Hotel Du Lac in Bellagio, situated on Lake Como, with stunning balcony views, in April 2005. It was very quiet (maybe because we were on the fourth floor) despite being on the waterfront and having a lively atmosphere along the street. There are 48 rooms and the location of this hotel was ideal. Our room had a balcony from which the views were wonderful as it is right on the edge of the lake.

Right outside the hotel is the ferry for Villa Carlotta at Tremezzo across the lake. We bought return tickets on the ferry to the villa for €12.50. This was a highlight of my visit. There's a bar there for coffee and a gift shop and we walked through the villa and part of the gardens.
