Hi all, if you live in the city this is the one place where you should get away! It's rustic, the word "instant" doesn't exist as things take time. A place where you fall in love with the food the weather and the scenery. I went to Lake Como in Italy, where celebrities Like George Clooney and Richard Branson reside and Vegas copied the Bellagio. A 30 minute train ride away well have you swapping Italy for Switzerland and Pasta for Chocolate! Hotel Glavjc is outstanding for its friendliness, the views and the food. The views from the bedrooms and their balconies are superb and the food was beautiful. http://www.hotelglavjc.it/
We take a ferry across the magnificent Lake Como. Passing by Villa del Balbianello, where the ending scene in James Bond: Casino Royale and one of the Star Wars movies were filmed (you can take a tour, but we were there on one of the days it was closed!) and float by Villa Carlotta. We end by walking through gardens of Giardini di Villa Melzi on Bellagio. Make sure to get a lemon drink after the gardens. And, we still don't know where George Clooney's house is.
No trip to Italy is complete without Milan and Lake Como. In Milan we'll take a peek at Italy's highest fashion, fanciest delis, grandest cemetery, and greatest opera house...not to mention Leonardo's Last Supper. Then we'll cruise along Lake Como, settling down in the lakeside village of Varenna...classic honeymoon country, where Italy meets the Alps. © 2006 Rick Steves' Europe
WHERE WE STAYED LINKED BELOW! I hope that you enjoy this little slice of Italy (still got pizza on the brain..) We had the best weekend chilling in the sun, eating the best Italian food and taking in the gorgeous Lake Como views. I would highly recommend for a mini break (or a long holiday!) and we particularly loved this hotel/restaurant nearby for lunch/dinner or breakfast - https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g1080135-d12690871-Reviews-Hotel_Ristorante_La_Sorgente-Plesio_Lake_Como_Lombardy.html OUR APARTMENT IN MENAGGIO: https://www.booking.com/hotel/it/apartment-menaggio.en-gb.html FOLLOW ME: https://www.instagram.com/lottierainbow/
