Lake Como- The Bellagio End!!!! The place that the Las Vegas hotel is named after!!!

Reese, Lynn, Richard #2 and I all took the train up to Como last week. Its brilliant, 3.60 Euros one way. The tolls are more than that on the autostrada so its significantly cheaper to take the train!!! When we got to Como we decided to take a hydrofoil boat across to Bellagio, which is supposed to be the "pearl of the lake". It sits right where the lake splits and is regarded as the most beautiful section of Lake Como. 
The lake is HUGE by the way. It took us almost an hour on a high speed boat to get from Como to Bellagio, with only a few stops along the way.  It really was picturesque though, with lots of little alleys!!!!!
I can see where the inspiration for the Vegas hotel came from, totally gorgeous. I'd definitely return :)

The photos are great! I think it's fair to say there are never enough alley pics. Plus, most are more like roads than alleys. It looks like everyone had a fantastic time :)

About Me

My photo
Milan, Italy
I am 34 years old, married to my wonderful husband Richard and mother to a beautiful 8 year old daughter named Reese. We lived in the suburbs of Calgary until January 2010 where I worked as an ER Nurse. Then my husband was transferred to Vancouver for a 6 month temporary project. Our blog Tripping over the Sidewalk told all about our adventure living on the 30th floor of an apartment building in the middle of downtown Vancouver. Then we moved to Milan, Italy for 18 months, Ciao-Eh was the online forum for our Italian adventures. We moved to Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates in January 2012 and lived there for two and a half years. Sandscrapers, Souks and Sand is the blog of our adventures in the Middle East! We are now happy to be back on a little acreage just outside of Calgary where I'm sure more adventures await!!!!
