Hotel Excelsior Splendide sits just steps away from the shores of Lake Como on Bellagio’s lovely promenade. The ferry terminal is only a two-minute walk away, making it easy for those who want to explore. Just a ten-minute walk away is the breath-taking Villa Melzi whose gardens were commissioned as a park to agronomists and are one of Lake Como's 'must sees'. They offer some fabulous walks high above the royal villas and through the Japanese style forests.
The hotel is a landmark in its own right with its classic Italian design, intricate stone engravings and cast iron Juliet balconies overlooking the lake. The interior focuses on classic simplicity with touches of grandeur including a curved marble staircase as you enter. The rooms are simple in their decoration. Blackout drapes and air conditioning make for the ultimate comfort particularly in summer months and an à la carte restaurant is just a few steps across the road for those who wish to take dinner. For those days when rest and relaxation is key, the hotel has gardens formed around an outdoor pool, perfect for a dip in the hotter months.
Transfer time: approx. 2 hours by coach.
