After spending the morning in the Therme and then having a delicious breakfast buffet we headed back to Italy. Our final destination: Bellagio on Lake Como. We had one stop along the way - Church San Benedetg by Peter Zumthor (architect of Therme Vals) in Sumvitg, Switzerland. It is a beautiful little piece of architecture in a very tiny town. The …
A leisurely breakfast of croissants, scrambled eggs & bread rolls with ham & cheese (& cappuccino). Went to the hairdressers and had a colour for 60euro & Pete got a cut then went shopping. Another piece of Armani clothing...We then decided that perhaps we would drive to Milan which was a bizarre thought as we were at Lake Como to …
An early 5.00am start to pack all our bags and get our **** together. We wanted to be at the Pirata for breakfast and they open at 6.30am. We then had to catch the first shuttle up the hill at 7am. Unfortunately, the boys at Pirata were running late so we managed to get a coffee but not much else by the time we left. Almost missed the bus, so Pete …
... REJOICE -—-—-—-—-— ;-—-—-—-—-̵ 2; From the kindness of my fellow lord of the ringers - Sammie and I packed up the car ready to return back to our place in the sun (San don). Before it was exit time, all the different levels of the children had prepared performances for their parents outside the front of the school. Sammie and I caught the first few moments of the gig ...
We arrived in Como at 8:00pm Friday night. That night a couple of my friends and I walked around the tiny little city located right on Lake Como to get a sense of the town. I got lucky and was put in the quad room and we had a rooftop terrace that was larger than our actual room to sleep in. Saturday morning, we went to Giuseppe Terragni's Casa del Fascio, which is the most famous example of rationalist architecture ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Florence Bellagio
Beautiful hotel in perfect location.
Of our 14 nights spent in hotels in Italy, this was by far the nicest, and cheapest, hotel. Located right on the water in Bellagio, it's in a perfect spot. We had a large room with a GREAT view. The hotel's restaurant is also very good. The staff was wonderful and very accomodating.
We actually left the hotel next door and checked in here. This hotel has a lot of character, our room was adorable. We also had a great view of the lake. We both enjoyed breakfast as well. I highly recommend this hotel to travelers.
Really wonderful !
We stayed at the Hotel Florence for 3 nights in a room on the fourth floor with a balcony over the street. Small view from our balcony. The room was small, but comfortable. Nice bathroom ! The breakfasts were great, and the lunch on the lake-side patio was the best we had in Italy. Great location and a nice bar for evening cocktails or wine. We loved its charm !
The Hotel Florence in Bellagio was wonderful
Travelled around Italy with one of my good friends. Very much enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Florence. We stayed in a room with a Lake view -- gorgeous. Very modern bathroom, great wood ceilings and floors, professional, friendly and knowledgable staff. It is easy to get to everything in Bellagio from the hotel and the ferry stop is a quick 1-2 minute walk. Highly recommend it!
Have just returned from 4 days in Bellagio, where we stayed at the Hotel Florence. We loved the setting, loved the decor and the staff were wonderful! Their lakeside patio is the best in the town and the American Bar patio is also wonderful. The only problem - we started in a non-lake view room and were disappointed as it was noisy backing on to a walkway. We were able to move to a lakeside room but found that the sun was unbearable in the late afternoons, when we had hoped to enjoy a glass of wine and enjoy the view! You have to put up with a little noise on either side but the location and excellent mix of antique old/funky new decor made up for it!
We had such an enjoyable time in Belagio at the hotel Florence that we went back a second time and stayed at the same hotel. We look forward to going back again,staying at the Hotel Florence and having dinner at their wonderful setting by the lake.
My wife and I spent 3 days in Bellagio during the end of July 2003 and stayed in room #4 at the Hotel Florence. It shares a large 2nd floor deck with #5 that has a great view of the Lake to the west.
This hotel was perfect. Lovely location and room and the lakeside restaurant was the best in Bellagio.
Recommended by my Travel Agent. The Hotel is family run and is simply georgeous.
Hotel Florence in Beautiful Bellagio
I am so glad that we found this wonderful hotel in Bellagio, Italy just steps from the Ferry stop on Lake Como. Bellagio is situated at the point where the 3 arms of Lake Como come together and the 3 star Hotel Florence presents a magnificent view of the lake. The rooms were lovely and very comfortable and the restaurant was elegant and shouldn't be missed. The staff was very eager to please and they made us feel right at home. Bellagio is a wonderful place to visit and the Hotel Florence made it that much more enjoyable. Just remember to take the Rapid Ferry!
