Villa Melzi d'Eril, near Bellagio, Lake Como, Plane Tree Walk: This is one of the more famous parts of the garden of Villa Melzi, and you've probably seen unidentified images of this walk on Pinterest and other places. Here, we see it beautifully captured by @mardia_8 , reposted from @bellagiocomolake
We looked at this villa and garden in 2016, use #villamelzijy to view, including some very rare interior images.
The Plane Tree Walk is one of the few level places in the garden, placed tightly between the slope of the land on our right and the shoreline on our left. The walk is divided into north and south sections, with the house in the center. Here, we are seeing the north section, and the villa is behind us. At the end of this walk is the Oriental Pavilion, and further on is a gate, which leads into the village of Bellagio. According to the Villa Melzi website: "The path along the lake which leads to the Villa is bordered by a plane-trees row that today as originally are magnificently pruned the shape of umbrella with the arms horizontally disclosed in order to offer major shade and coolness. Their shape allows the visitor to enjoy fully the lake view from the higher sides of the garden. The same kind of pruning was adopted for in French towns to protect soldiers of Napoleonic army by hot and sun." #como #lakecomo #neoclassical #johnyunis #garden #decorazioni #decor #deco #decorat #decorate #decoração #decoración #decoration #decorations #maison #casa #instastyle #italy #bellagio #palazzo #villa #villamelzi #villamelzideril #johnyunis
