Photographer's Note

We spent our w.e. with some friends in their home in Bellagio, a small village on the Lake of Como, famous worldwide for the fantastic panorama, the excellent weather and the top level hotels and restaurants.

Bellaggio is a tourist destination from more than 5 century, when the richest families of Milan built enormous villas on that small corner of the Lake.
Then Bellagio became an important step of the Grand Tour in Europe, and still today the city centre is full of foreigners from all the world, from the backpackers to the tycoons and is full of people of Milan that spent here the w.e.

Bellagio is 60 km north of Milan, at less than 60 minutes by car or 1 hour and 30' by train and ferry via Como.
One of the most beautiful way to go there is on the road of the Passo del Ghisallo, a small pass on the mounts between the 2 arms of the lake (Como and Lecco).
From the top of the Ghisallo there is a wonderful view over Bellagio and on the Lecco arm. Also the way along the lake is fantastic, from both the side, via Como or Via Lecco.

Saturday and yesterday there was a wonderful weather, with all the pubs and restaurants full of people on the open air tables. Sun, good temperature and low humidity.

For the ones that are thinking to buy a small house there, you must know before that the price is around 7-8.000 euros for square meters for a small house in a condos without lake-view.
For the ones with a lake-view it go over the 9.000, 10.000 euros.
For the villas with park we talk about 12-15.000 euros sq/m.
