The Romance of Lake Como & Bellagio
It was a wild and crazy drive across windy narrow roads, and a lot of twists and turns, but we finally made it from Venice to Bellagio, a little community known for it’s cobbled lanes, it’s elegant pastel colored buildings, and it’s fabulous villas on the water, as it is gently fanned by the breezes off the beautiful Lake Como.
Our hotel has an incredible view, sitting right on the lake. I don’t even have to leave the room to enjoy a panoramic vista of neighboring communities across the water, easily accessible by the ferry, which sits right under my window.
Bellagio is a great place to relax on the beach, sit lakefront with a glass of wine, take a boat tour across the water to a neighboring little village of Varenna or Menaggio, or just stroll down the tiny little streets and alleyways that are so charming. It’s the perfect little get-away place to just come, chill, and relax.
There are dozens of shops to get leather goods, clothing, perfumes, and soak up some of the local food in the many little restaurants. Make sure and wear some good shoes tho…there are a lot of ups and downs as you navigate the alleys.
Each town has it’s own unique character and flavor. Wow, these people really live in some amazingly beautiful places!
As you can see, taking the Ferry across the lake is a popular thing to do. We must have hit it just right because we never had a line.
A couple of days to just relax and unwind and we will be heading back to California. Thanks for coming along with us. We hope you’ll be following along for our next adventure soon!
