BELLAGIO

Saturday, June 2, 2012
Hans and I, along with Kate (Goodfish) and Jerry, spent a lovely afternoon in Bellagio. We were blessed with a beautiful sunny day to explore this "Pearl of Lake Como".
BELLAGIO is located on Lake Como, in the province of Como and the Italian region Lombardy. It has long been famous for its setting at the intersection of the three branches of the Y-shaped Lake Como. Bellagio is situated at the tip of the peninsula separating the lake's two southern arms, with the Alps clearly visible across the lake, to the North.
The Romans were the first to use Bellagio as a holiday resort. It was also one of the villages most frequented by the Lombardy nobility and thus began the construction of villas and gardens. Luxury shops opened in the village and tourists began to arrive. So tourism had now become the principal economic resource of the people of Bellagio. Hotels were constructed. The first was the Hotel Bellagio, founded in 1825, followed by Hotel Genazzini.
Today, Bellagio is visited by many tourists like us, who thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

    I think I am a tad jealous that you were with Goodfish ( Kate and husband) if you all come to Cairns we would have a ball. Honestly though,you have wonderful pages on Bellagio.

    Hugs Dorrise ((()))

      Yes, we had a very fun time with Kate and hubby. We met them once before at the Chicago Meet. They are very relaxed and easy to travel with - like us!

    Looks like you had a lovely day in Bellagio! When I visited it was February and colder, so instead of an Italian ice cream I bought a hot chocolate.

    A very attractive place in Italy which worth a visit for sure. A week ago I was in Las Vegas and visited one of the most beautiful hotel-casino which was named after this italian city...
