Bellagio

                                   470 Watercolour  

    S Giacomo                                                          The ferry landing stage

Bellagio, the pearl of Lake Como lies at the tip of the triangle formed by the two southern branches, the Tringolo Lariano. The scenic waterfront features an oleander lined promenade and many grand hotels. Away from the waterfront there are numerous steep cobbled alleys with shops and cafes. At the tip of the promontory there is the Punta Spartivento and a small harbour from where there bare good views down the eastern leg of the lake

We spent a relaxing morning wandering round the town and enjoying a cappuccino before returning to Cadenabbia on the ferry.

About crosbyman66

My aim is to create a photo diary of my walks and my travels. I have two main hobbies, walking and photography and these complement each other. I am a senior citizen, what used to be called an old age pensioner, but I don't feel old. Since retirement I have had more time to pursue my hobbies and the opportunity to travel more. My philosophy now is - Do what you can, while you can. My other interests are fine wines and keeping fit. These may not complement each other but keep me happy.
