Where I stayed

Flag of Italy  , Lombardy,

From Milan we headed up to Bellagio in the Lakes. Our train left at 1pm and it was only an hour but we sadly did not anticipate the 90 min bus ride it took to get from the train station in Como to Bellagio nor that we would have to wait 30 mins for it in the first place. But the bus ride was one of the most scenic I have ever been on and once we arrived at our destination it was breath-taking, the sight of the crystal clear water against the mountains was really something, well worth the 2.5 hours to get there.

We had two nights in Bellagio. The first we walked in to town and had dinner. The next day we basically just strolled around taking in the beauty of the place until it started to rain so we retreated indoors back to the place we were staying which was self catering. The rain set in for the night so after a quick dash to the supermarket to get supplies for dinner we settled in to watch the only channel in English which was showing the world's worst film... joyride OF DEATH! Or something of that ilk about a homicidal truck driver and 4 kids going to Las Vegas to get married who take a "short cut" through the desert. I can think of better ways to spend an evening to say the least.
