Enjoy the Delights of Bellagio and the Beautiful Lake Como, Italy

With such a wide range of tours available at The Travel Adventure, it goes without saying it’s a pleasure to see one of our groups really relishing the experience.

The latest happy group have been enjoying the delights of Bellagio, located on the beautiful Lake Como, Italy. Here’s what they had to say:

We’ve just returned from a four day break to Bellagio, the gem of Lake Como – this really was a “wow factor” trip.

Sipping wine on our balconies, overlooking the lake, situated at the foot of the snow capped Alps, you really understand why this is the place often favoured by the rich and famous. What struck me as remarkable was the fact that we could all go out for a great Italian meal of local food and the “must have”  bottle of local wine, and still get change from 20 Euros, I think it’s called having your cake and eating it! 

Anyhow, keen to explore, we got our bearings with a days cruise around the lake and its spectacular panoramic views – setting off from our own jetty, literally a stones throw from our hotel. We also enjoyed the picturesque village of Bellagio with its century-old buildings, cobbled streets, galleries, boutiques, patisseries and shops showcasing the finest Italian wares.

On the Sunday, we enjoyed an excursion on the famous Bernina Express, the highest mountain railway in the Alps. This panoramic train really showcases the wonders of nature and is certainly the best ways to visit this part of Switzerland. A quick stop at St Moritz, a walk around the lake, a deserving hot chocolate at the Sun Hotel, before the journey home. Unfortunately most of the shops were closed, which proved a great relief to the men of our party, …still it was a great day, and the views were truly stunning.

A big thanks to all at The Travel Adventure for yet another amazing trip, great price, great hotel and the views were totally priceless.
