Bellagio and Lake Como

As we near the end of August, we are seeing more and more shops closed for the remainder of the month. Hair salons, coffee shops, even pharmacies... all closed. Even the church we want to visit is closed for the month, since the American pastor is on holiday back in the States. It's pretty crazy.

We took a small vacation ourselves over a long weekend, and headed just north of Milan to Lake Como, and a town called Bellagio. It sits right on Lake Como with water surrounding three sides. Lake Como is a skinny, but very long lake, so it's popular to take short ferry rides across the water to visit the various villas and towns. We were able to see three different towns, during our stay; Bellagio, Menaggio and Varenna.

The following pictures are mostly of the villas we toured.

And our quaint hotel.

And yummy food!
