Buon giorno. Bellagio, on Lake Como is truly a piece of heaven. The pedestrian plaza and lake shore is lined with rosemary bushes, the streets are packed with gellaterias, stores selling silk scarves and ties and villas that take your breath away. Bells chime from chapels from all the surrounding lakefront towns. It is a divine sensory overload.

We toured Villa Melzi and its beautiful English-style giardini (gardens) with groves of azaleas, gigantic rhododendrons and perfectly manicured hedges all which sit on the lake's banks. We enjoyed a panini on the waterfront, lemoncello on la terraza, and just took it all in... this is a place one must experience.

Bellagio holds the characteristics you could only dream of. In fact, I feel almost guilty leaving this entry so short, but we cannot find the enough words worthy of describing this magnificent place....we have to pinch each other to remind ourselves at how lucky we are to be in such a spectacular place together.

Salute!

Thanks a lot
Laurie is thrilled with your travelogue - she's been trying to get me to Europe for years. I can see that it's quite beautiful and that you are having a wonderful time.

How's the scuba diving? ;>)
