      Smetana Bellagia

      July 29, 2022 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

      Tale Bellagio je pač najbolj gužvast doslej. Pač en tak Comski Rovinj... Si bova privoščila jest zunaj. Sva čakala v vrsti, da so odprli. Točno opoldne si se lahk vsedel, niti minute prej (je bilo nekaj poskusov in precej OMGjev). Ob 12:12 že vse polno :)Read more

      Belaggio

      September 26, 2022 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

      So richtig sind wir miteinander den Motorrädern nicht zu den exponierten Stelle gekommen. Parkplätze, von denen man hätte zu de Stelle gehen können, waren schon überfüllt und die Polizei hat uns gleich weiter geschickt... und für weiter entfernt Parkplätze waren wir im BikeOutfit schlicht und einfach nicht wandertauglich, zu schwer angezogen...
      Also nur ne Runde gedreht und weiter.

      Como-Bellagio-Day 3

      March 17, 2023 in Italy

      Exploring Day - We drove 50 mins to the town of Bellagio on Lago De Como. This town is what the Bellagio Casino in Vegas is named after. The road was narrow and almost complete switchbacks the entire time. We were up higher than the lake. There were some really pretty views. When we arrive to the town we were starving of course. So we got some “toast”. Americans would call it a grilled ham and cheese. You can also get it just cheese. restaurants, cafes and bars serve different things in Italy. You cant get toast at a restaurant. Only at a bar. And a bar can serve alcohol, espresso or dolci (desserts or pastries). You mostly only find gelato at a Gelateria. The town seemed to be under a bit of construction so the path along the lake was blocked. We decided to take a cute little faux train on a tour around the town. It took about 25 mins. After we got back to started walking up, up and up more steps to the different streets. We found a place to eat that served fish n chips for Andrew and a Hamburger for Renee. Gabe wasn’t hungry and I got a GREEN salad. We chose this place quickly and because we were Hangry! As we left, we walked about 5 more steps and found a delightful quaint bistro serving truffle risotto. Fail!
      We took some photos, got a gelato and headed back to Como. We parked the car and walked to the Funicular stop. The Funicular is a tram that climbs the side of the mountain. This one takes 7 minutes to get from Como to Brunate. Deer Valley has a Funicular that we like. So this was very interesting to us. The town of Brunate is at the top of the Funicular. High above the lake. We took some photos and looked for a place to eat something. We chose a nice family owned trattoria, got some pasta and a Prosecco for Mom. We rode the Funicular back to Como and of course had to stop for a gelato. Gabe and Veronica decided to have a date night in Piazza de Volta. Andrew and Renee went back to the apartment. Ready to drive to France tomorrow!

    • Day 17

      Bellagio

      October 2, 2023 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

      This morning the bus left the hotel at 8.00am and drove us the 60 minutes to Bellano, a town on the eastern side of Lake Como, from which we caught a ferry to the famous and beautiful town of Bellagio, right at the geographical centre of lake Como. The town, like most in this area, is built on the shores of Lake Como, the surrounding hills of which plummet spectacularly from about 800m above the lake into the water. The mountains seem further back from the lake are up to 2500m above sea level. The lake is said to have been carved out by a glacier over many years.
      Bellagio is a famous town on the lake and we spent several hours wandering through its streets and to the peninsula which reaches right out into the middle of the lake and from which the are almost 300 degrees views.
      We ate a pasta lunch overlooking the lake.
      After lunch we caught another ferry to the western side of the lake to visit Villa Carlotta, a famous large villa built in the early 19th century for an aristocratic Italian family. The villa has been a museum for many years, and is an insight into how the upper class maintained large stately homes in this region hundreds of years ago. The gardens are also extensive and well maintained. There were a large number of huge trees in the garden the must be at least 200 years old, including an impressive cedar of Lebanon which is huge in height and girth.
      We caught a ferry back to Bellano, then the bus back to Como, admiring the amazing tunnels through the mountains that must have taken years and millions of dollars to build. We also respected the skills of the bus driver on the switchback turns climbing the mountain out of Bellano.
      We had a late dinner in Como before heading off to bed after a big day beside the glistening freshwater of Lake Como.

    • Day 6

      Bellagio

      September 22, 2021 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

      Bellagio, c’est une petite heure au nord de Milan.
      Bellagio, c’est cette petite ville dans l’entrejambe du lac de Come, qui a la forme d’un « Y » renversé.
      Bellagio nous a été conseillé par une connaissance allemande pour qui c’est l’endroit ou elle termine tous ses voyages.
      D’autres amis allemands nous ont décrit Bellagio comme le point ou se rencontrent les beaux et les riches.
      Françoise disait que Bellagio partage avec beaucoup de lieux jolis, pittoresques, photogéniques le sort d’être au bout d’un moment complètement dominé par le tourisme avec un afflux ininterrompu d’humains qui veulent eux aussi en faire partie et qui par leur simple masse détruisent (symboliquement) ce qu’ils sont venus chercher. Par ailleurs, nous en faisons partie…
      Gordes, St Tropez, Moustiers, les 5 terres, belle île, St Paul de Vence … etc partagent ce même sort.
      Nous avons décidé de contenir nos tendances agoraphobes et de consacrer une paire d’heures à la visite de ce joli village entouré d’eau.
      Heureusement que notre hébergement se trouve dans l’arrière-pays en altitude, ou l’air est frais …

    • Day 8

      Bellagio

      June 2, 2022 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

      Obwohl heute nicht nur unser Hochzeitstag sondern der Nationaltag von Italien ist, entschieden wir uns nach Bellagio zu fahren. Kaum erreichten wir den Ort, befanden wir uns auch schon in einer Autoschlange und alle suchten nach Parkplätzen. Inzwischen gibt es in Bellagio ein Einbahnstraßen-System. Daher entstanden zusätzliche kostenfreie Parkplätze, aber auch diese waren alle schon belegt. Jedoch hatten wir das Glück, dass direkt vor uns einer frei wurde.
      Bellagio hat die einzigartige Lage genau zwischen den beiden Armen des Comer Sees (und Leccoarm) zu liegen. Die schöne Atmosphäre des Örtchens hat sich seit unserem letzten Besuch von vor 7 Jahren schon ein wenig verändert. Es schien nicht nur an den sehr überfüllten Gassen zu liegen. So ist unsere Lieblingsweinbar jetzt eine Mode-Wein-Bar, die eher teurere Getränke und Speisen anbietet. Man setzt inzwischen auf das zahlungskräftigere Klientel. Das hatte zur Folge, dass bei einem günstigen Takeaway eine riesengroße Menschentraube stand. Wir werden es bei unserem nächsten Besuch näher unter die Lupe nehmen.
