Bellissimo Bellagio


On Father's Day, we took a day trip to Lake Como. The weather was absolutely perfect. We rode a train from Milan to Lake Como and then a boat from Lake Como to Bellagio. Bellagio is also called "the pearl of Lake Como" and we couldn't think of a more fitting name. With views of the Alps across the lake to the charming restaurants and shops along the cobblestone paths, Bellagio was the perfect little town, so picturesque. It seemed as if there were surprises waiting for us at every corner... 
Next stop, Bellagio!

Taking in the spectacular view...




Waiting for our table
Lush greenery

Glittering water...


Hydrangeas in every shade of pink
We ate at the lovely Trattoria San Giacomo for lunch. Someone's review on tripadvisor.com said, "It doesn't get better than this!" and we couldn't agree more. The staff was so friendly and it was worth the hour wait. Our pasta dishes were simply delicious, made with the freshest of ingredients.

We also had the most amazing frozen yogurt. The frozen yogurt in Italy is yogurt gelato so it is much more creamier and rich. Topped with halved strawberries, it was like they were dipped in frozen whipped cream.




Pasta too pretty to eat
Passing the field of lavender and ripping one off to smell on the boat ride back to Lake Como...
