Our plan for the day was to get a day-long ferry pass for the mid-section of Lake Como and see as much as we could of Bellagio and Varenna. Started a little late, so we only got to Bellagio. We did tour Giardini di Villa Melzi, a beautiful waterfront property and thoroughly enjoyed it. The grounds comprise a number of acres and are maintained impeccably. The property also includes a small chapel where some of the original occupants (friends of Napoleon) are interred, a small museum and the villa itself, which was not open to the public. The grounds were the highlight though.
