Bagolino (Brescian: Bagulì) is a comune in the province of Brescia, in Lombardy, Italy, in the valley of the river Caffaro, on the right side of Valle Sabbia. Bagolino is known for the cheese named Bagòss and the carnival. Similar to grana padano, Bagòss is a salty cheese with traces of natural mold at times.

The village retains its medieval appearance, with houses crowded and winding streets, arcades, squares, fountains, ancient buildings and narrow stairs that go up to the church of St. George.

The frazione Ponte Caffaro lies on the shore of Lake Idro.
