I am in Bellagio, Lake Como

Bongiorno! I am in Bellagio, a picturesque village that is located near Lake Como. Bellagio is is the namesake of the Bellagio fountain in Las Vegas and also a town located very close to George Clooney’s mansion.

We arrived by train from Milan Malpensa Airport and it took us approximately 4 hours to arrive here door to door. We spent this morning exploring the narrow, cobblestoned roads of Bellagio. We spotted old churches and magnificent villas, before sitting by the lakeside to enjoy the views of Lake Como! I took some pics from my iPad (I will write a blog with higher quality pics on my return). Hope that your are enjoying your weekend!
