    Thanks for the hints Iz. Although we'd been to Como before, a few days before we went, a week ago I thought I'd take a look on youtube for things to do. We stayed at a hotel 20 minutes by road from Bellagio. We'd already been to the castle in Varenna and in my opinion is one the best views available anywhere. Thanks for the tip to go the Balcony of Italy, it is a bit of trek, even by car up that hill but it is well worth it. The views are magnificent.
    We also went, at your recommendation, to the ST Martino church. Once again well worth the effort. Thanks.
    We went to San Maurizio close to the Funicular railway that takes you to Brunate. The drive up to San Maurizio was a challenge to say the least but once again more than worth the effort.
    La Lanterna is also a worthy restaurant recommendation and we dined there several times.

    It’s very rare to find a great looking woman’s personality so bubbly and beautiful that when you look at her face you don’t see her face but physical manifestation of her personality. Wrinkles and age will never affect this woman, she will always be beautiful.

    Nice to see this beautiful lake in the fall with the leaves turning color. Most videos are done in the May to Sept window, so this gave another version. Great you can still do all this traveling with two young kids. Looked like a fabulous trip!

    Very well done! Beautiful video.
    Funny fact: an Italian would never ever eat pizza or lasagne alla bolognese while visiting these places, unless he/she lives in the surroundings. Pizza is from Naples and Lasagne are from, well, Bol8gna of course. Try pizzoccheri or polenta taragna next time. Again: great video!

  5. Andrea Orofalo says:

    Bellagio is indeed very touristic and crowded most of the times. The Gardens of Villa Melzi definitely worth a visit: they are wonderful.
    My humble suggestion is to pay a visit also to the other two big lakes in northern Italy: Lake Maggiore and Lake Garda.

    I first saw one of your videos spring of 2019 while checking out YouTube videos on Amsterdam. Discovered this one later in the fall while looking into Como. It was this second video that made me a fan. I enjoy your work!
