Villa Serbelloni’s park, which in the past was known as Bellagio’s Castle, is located on bellagio’s promontory in a landscaped location,which divides the two branches of Lake Como. A paceful walk between the nineteenth-century’s gardens makes the tour a great experience for visitors who can enjoy the breathtaking ladscape on the lake.
On this promontory, Pliny the Younger wanted to built a villa named “Tragoedia” in the 63 A.D.; than in the Middle Ages a Longobard fortress took that place, the ownership passed from the Stanga to the Sfondratis, who built the current villa, which was traded to Alessandro Serbelloni.
Alessandro Serbelloni at the end of 18th century took the decision to set up the beautiful italian gardens , with sculptures, caves, archaeological curiosities and esotic fauna.
Rockefeller Foundation is the current owner of the park and organizes guided tour in collaboration with the City of Bellagio. Today the Villa is used for conferences and activities. Only the gardens are opened to the public.
