As soon as we arrived, we got our "grand" rental car, I used my old trusty garmin and tried offline routing with navdroyd, and it got us there :)


just to be safe, I used double routing :)

After a pretty drive next to the lake, we got to the panoramic hotel I found. It wsa not walking distance from downtown (but ok since we had a car), and it had a fantastic view.

nice view from our hotel room :)

After checking in, we drove down to a parking lot (easier said than done) and walked to downtown, where we grabbed a boat to Varenna. We grabbed some lunch and hiked to the top castle.





it was more than time for lunch

We then went back to Bellagio for more touring, and had dinner by a nice vista point:






The next morning, we had a nice breakfast on the "porch" :) and we took a Ferry to go to Villa Balbianello:












After lunch, we headed back to Bellagio for some hiking around the top of the island (it unfortunately was not that great a trail with so-so views compared to the trail length and difficulty in places.







When we were done, we drove back to Milan where we spent the night.
