As a friend of mine has been visiting me for the past few days we decided yesterday to take a day trip to Como and Bellagio. As I have been to Como many times, I was keen on taking the ferry to see other towns on the lake. On our way to Bellagio the ferry usually stops on every town on the way for people to embark and disembark to get to their destination. This one hour journey was breathtaking,I personally have never seen anything as beautiful. The Italian villas that are situated on the water, the rolling hills, the tiny winding streets, and people spending their hot days on their boats. LA DOLCE VITA! As we got to Bellagio it was beautiful and definitely a great choice on our behalf for choosing to end up there. Right away off we went looking for some food after subduing our hunger. We decided to roam this great place. While walking around we ended up at Villa Melzi d’Eril, ughhh the view from there, if heaven looks something like that please do sign me up! The villa was built for the Duke Melzi by Napoleon, Melzi played the role of vice president for Napoleon’s short lived Italian Republic. Check out the images below to see the beauty I have been talking about!
