After closely watching the weather, we traveled with Bellagio Water Taxi to the Villa del Balbianello, a stunning villa with terraced gardens that overlooks Lake Como. The villa was converted to a museum honoring the most recent owner, Guido Monzino (Italian explorer and artifact collector), who died young and after renovating the entire villa and only spending only a few months? years? in the place. He left it to the National Trust of Italy who now run tours of the villa.
