    Lezzeno - Lake Como

    September 8 in Italy

    Our home for the next three nights is a traditional Italian holiday home on the shores of Lake Como, in a small town called Lezzeno, 2km from the well known Bellagio. Far enough away to not be too touristy but close enough to visit for the day.
    The bus ride here was quite perilous but the views and atmosphere are worth the scary ride.
    A beautiful place to unwind and relax for a few days.

    Como - Lake Como

    September 8 in Italy

    Well we mastered two trains to make it to Como. I think we are starting to get a hang of the transport system here.
    From here we are catching a bus to Lezzeno, our location for the next three nights, but thought we would store our luggage and check out Como on our way.
    It is nice location on the end of Lake Como with a relaxing atmosphere and huge cathedral. I loved the colours of the Como Cathedral with the use of orange and black stone it was different to the other churches we had seen along the way. It was an impressive structure against the vivid blue sky.
    There was a service going on so we decided to enjoy a light and very delicious lunch under the shadow of the cathedral itself. While having lunch the service ended and we watched a procession of clergymen as they left the church. Not sure if they were from the local monastery but it was impressive to see.
    Como was a pleasant place to visit and one we could have spent more time in. Maybe next time.

    Bellagio

    September 9 in Italy

    We caught the bus from our apartment into Bellagio and were quite charmed by the place. It wasn’t what I had expected but I loved the look and feel of the place.

    We managed to communicate enough with the locals to work out which ferry to catch and hopped on board to enjoy a trip around the lake.
    Our original plan was to hop off at a couple of places and explore but we decided it was lovely and relaxing to just stay onboard and enjoy the cruise around the lake. It was a lovely way to see the area and not punish our feet any further.

    We got off back at Bellagio, enjoyed a stroll around the shops, enjoyed a delicious lunch overlooking the lake and checked out the San Giacomo Church, built between 1075 and 1125.

    We finished the day with a naughty but delicious ice cream sundae and managed to catch the right bus back to our apartment. A wonderful day spent being tourist.

    Crotto del Misto, Lezzeno

    September 10 in Italy

    We spent a "down" day today at the apartment, catching up on washing and just relaxing. At about 3pm we decided we were getting a bit peckish so walked to the restaurant just up the road for a late lunch, forgetting that Italians don't do late lunches. The restaurant was closed but instead of walking back to our accommodation we decided to sit on the verandah and enjoy a few drinks and some snacks while we waited for the restaurant to open at 7pm.

    The host pretended to speak very little English and did not "understand" when we were asking if we could have some drinks, but we overheard him later talking perfect English. There is a real lack of customer service over here and we often feel as if we are putting them out. He did manage to get across to us that we would need to book if we wanted dinner, which we were quite amused about as we were in the middle of nowhere. Thankfully we did though as it did fill up very quickly and the people we spent the afternoon chatting with were unable to get a table.

    We spent a lovely few hours admiring the view, having a few drinks, and appreciating the snacks they bring with the drinks, and chatting to a family from American that were celebrating their Dad's 60th. It was a fabulous way to spend the afternoon before enjoying a very delicious dinner at the restaurant. A great last day on Lake Como.

    Lake Como

    September 5, 2017 in Italy

    We are staying in an apartment in Faggeto Lario, which is situated between Como and Bellagio on Lake Como. We have great views of Lake Como...and George Cluney's villa (so we are told). We may go exploring the region OR we may just sit here for two days and enjoy a beautiful part of the world.

  • Day92

    Bellagio Italy

    September 6, 2017 in Italy

    Lunch at Bellagio (the village not the hotel!). Bellagio is located on the point jutting out where Lake Como branches off into two arms of the lake. Perfect weather here, about 26 degrees. Tomorrow we add another country to our trip - Switzerland. Lugano is our first stop.

  • Day9

    Lac de Côme

    September 19 in Italy

    Nous avons passé la nuit en pleine foret, entouré de champignons (il faut absolument que l'on trouve une application car nous souhaitions tous les ramasser!!) et visite de Côme le lendemain.
    Les villes sont assez inaccessible avec notre camping car mais du coup nous profitons bien de nos vélos!!

    Lago Lugano

    October 25 in Italy

    Wir sind nun im Süden der Alpen am Lago Lugano. Dank Nachsaison sind wir fast alleine auf dem Campingplatz, Platz direkt mit Seezugang. Die einzigen Nachbarn sind Holländer und haben ein kleines dreijähriges Mädchen dabei. Wie passend! Leider verschiebt sich unsere Weiterfahrt um einen Tag, der Bulli springt nicht mehr an und am Ende muss eine neue Batterie her :-(Read more
