On our second full day in Lake Como, we decided to venture to Bellagio for the morning. This charming village, really is a must see if you come to the area.
We passed the beautiful village on our way to Varenna the day before and we were excited to explore. It was hard to miss being a long-established tourist resort and a destination for shopping. This area is famous for it’s silk!
The village is larger than many of the others along the lake, so there was a bit more to take in.
We started our visit at the harbour, and a walked along the promenade admiring the views, the grand villas and the gardens.
From there we winded ourselves around the village cobble streets. Popping into various boutiques.
There is a steep forested hill rises immediately behind Bellagio from where you can get very extensive views along the lake.
We spent the rest of the day at the hotel dipping our feet in and out of the cold lake.
On our final day we were terribly sad to leave the beautiful Lake, but excited to be heading to the coast!
We decided to take one last stop before we left for lunch in the town Cernobbio – Lake Como is just full of charming towns, You could easily spend several weeks exploring (and I wish we had!)!
Although we did not have enough time to explore the famous Villa d’Este, we did wander up Monte Bisbino to get some beautiful views of the Lake.
So many wonderful memories to take home with us from Lake Como!
Anyone thinking of having a holiday in this area of Italy, I would recommend they run don’t walk! It was magical!
