Visiting Lake Como - Italy

I have just come back from a fabulous week in Lake Como. My first visit to the any Italian lake and it is a truly beautiful part of the world. Stayed in a little village north-east called Bellano, wonderful in the way that it was less touristy than many other villages, so not overcrowded.
Ferry to all the other villages along the lake was very easy and so pleasant on the water. Lake was beautiful to swim in. I wanted to share a few photos.



Sounds like a successful visit! The pictures are amazing!

thank you … and I am not even a great photographer. :rofl:

Looks fabulous! I’d love to do the walk in the first photo!

Looks beautiful Therese… what’s the name of the gorge in the first picture?

It was the gorge in Bellano itself … Orrido di Bellano. The interesting note was that is supplies the whole village with its water and tons of water still goes into the lake. It was so refreshing to be in there. There are so many fountains around to fill your water bottles. :potable_water:


Wow @Therese-Moderator, what a beautiful location to enjoy your holiday. Thanks for sharing your photos and telling us about this little gem of a village that is less touristy.


Hi @Therese-Moderator welcome back! What a beautiful time you must have had. This is one area we cannot wait to visit, but it’s going to be a year and a half or so before we can. I will just have to live vicariously through your pics for now!


@Therese-Moderator stunning thank you for sharing, I’m so glad that you had an amazing time, it’s what you so deserved.

I have one question though, did you see George?

Truly stunning. When I was there it was so hazy. The day we were leaving the skies cleared and you could see the Alps. It looks like you would have experienced that, too! Happy for you. :blush:


I spent a lovely week there some years ago and stayed in Hotel Bellagio

It’s such a beautiful part of the world isn’t it! It’s been over 10 years since I was there! Glad you enjoyed it!
