So beautiful and relaxing! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave lots of info in both English and Portuguese. Not mentioned in the tour description is the lunch offered onboard the tour boat. Two courses plus dessert and a drink for €14.50 was a great deal, and the view from the dining table was just fine. Once in Bellagio, if you've already seen too many churches and narrow streets, you can go swimming! Be sure to bring sandals or water shoes because the beaches are pebbly and hard on the feet, but the water is fine in the summer! Walk south down the shore 5 minutes to the Lido Cafe. They charge for beach access (€?) but they give you a locker. Or continue walking through the public gardens. Admission is €6 per person, but it's beautiful and shady and much better than walking on the street. After the gardens continue walking south a few minutes along the road and you will come to a free beach. The little restaurant will give you a key to the bathroom/changing room. Overall 2 hours free time and 1/2 hour walking gives you 1.5 hours on the beach.
