Playground for the Rich & Famous
Beautiful Bellagio Lake Como Italy
Beautiful Bellagio Lake Como Italy with it’s cobblestone lanes and elegant buildings with beautiful views over the famous lake. The village is characterized by century-old buildings & interesting stone lanes & steps.
Climbing all the Bellagio stairs is an excellent way to work up an appetite. 🙂
View from the top of the steps.
Every time you turn around there is another great photo opportunity.
I used to wonder why so many European towns & villages had such narrow streets & lanes. Then a friend of mine Riny Doyle, from Breil Sur Roya in the south of France, explained it was simple to control the temperature. Narrow lanes meant a much cooler environment, & lets face it in those ancient times there were no air conditioned shopping malls where you could get relief from the heat. 🙂
Delightful little cafes & restaurants
Around every corner there is a little cafe or restaurant.
If you prefer a water view
Here is a perfecy spot to soak up the view of Beautiful Bellagio Lake Como Italy. Perhaps if you hange around long enough you may see George Clooney wander in with his beautiful bride. 🙂
Sadly I don’t have the time.
I don’t have the time to wait for George as I’m about to catch the car ferry to the other side of the lake.
Bit of a rust bucket
At least I don’t have far to travel.
Lets explore a little more before I leave.
More stairs and more shops.
And another little hidden restaurant.
A surprise around every corner.

The crowd builds up
Lunch is over, now for some serious shopping.
Farewell to beautiful Bellagio
As Andrea Bocelli would say……
Time to say goodbye. (lets not forget Sarah Brightman)
Ferry across Lake Como
The views from the ferry are absolutely stunning.
