Lake Como Grand Hotels and Bellagio
Villa d'Este in Cernobbio (Lake Como Southwest section)
This opulent Hotel has been serving the rich and royals for many years although originally built for a Cardinal in 1568. It offers a very unique swimming pool (below), sculptures, topiary, bridges and passages over the massive 25 acre manicured grounds. Hop a water taxi across the lake to the village of Bellagio and the Grand Hotel.
The Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni, Bellagio
on Lake Como
The Grand Hotel has been noted as one of the most prestigious hotels for over 100 years
The luxurious vegetation of its Italian-style gardens, Mediterranean and subtropical plants, flourish in the pleasant climate around the lake with sunshine almost all year round and mild temperatures in every season. The hotel is grand with breathtaking Lake moutain views plunging into the lake waters. The train travels from Milan Central to Como and the water taxi takes you directly to the hotels.
My Bellagio photos
Great shopping and dining in the town of Bellagio, It's easy to walk around and see everything. Take a water taxi back to the main town of Como or to other hotels. I love Bellagio and the Vegas version doesn't do it justice!
