 Cobblestone steps

Climbing all the Bellagio stairs is an excellent way to work up an appetite. 🙂

Every time you turn around there is another great photo opportunity.

Narrow lanes

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

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.
