In other little towns, there are more tiny beaches and lakeside bars. Lido di Bellagio and pebbly San Giovanni beach will be waiting for those who wish to cross the waters and explore the beautiful town of Bellagio. Locals and visitors also enjoy traveling to Nesso on the other coast where the bravest swimmers can jump into the lake from the ancient Roman bridge near the waterfall.
