The very touristy town of Bellagio...bellissimo! After an hour train ride, including a missed stop, and a 1 1/2 hour bus ride on treacherous mountain roads, we arrived in Bellagio at my favorite time of day - lunchtime...spaghetti bolognese, caprese salad, and gelato...in a word...fantastico!
And as wondeful as Bellagio was, we loved Varenna even more - hardly any rich Aussies/Germans/Japanese to bump into - only the occasional stupido Americano...which alternated between me and the mister. Two pics just to whet your appetites...I won't bore you with the 19 hour flight(s) from hell...or the body/bag search in Amsterdam - except to say cold hands were involved...and I'll not mention the bus tickets to no-where, the free train ride (which is what you get if you forget to buy tickets and don't get caught), the late-night run to the Supermercato to buy a much needed hair brush after drooling over one ENTIRE AISLE of every kind of pasta imaginable, or sleep deprivation which is only alleviated by eating gelato. Feel free to quote me on that. We're having a great time - together - who'd a thunk it?! Arrividerci!
