A Kiss on the Chic’s Creative Retreat ~ Bellagio Day 3

Sep 30, 2012

Sep­tem­ber 20th, every­one got up bright and ear­ly to ride the fer­ry from Bel­la­gio to Como to do some site see­ing and and of course some much need­ed shop­ping.  The fer­ry ride down to Como was filled with beau­ti­ful sites all along to way.

  • Pho­to 1 was the view of Lake Como from our front door. I loved hear­ing the church bells chime and watch­ing the sun rise and high­light­the moun­tains.
  • Pho­tos 2, 3 and 4 were tak­en at the Fer­ry land­ing in Bel­la­gio. It is just a short walk from the hotel and real­ly pret­ty first thing in the morn­ing.
  • Pho­tos 5, 6 and 7 were tak­en while rid­ing the fer­ry down to Como. I’m not kid­ding when I say every sin­gle sec­ond you want to take a pho­to.
  • Pho­tos 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 where tak­en of the Cathe­dral of Como (Duo­mo). You could spend days pho­tograph­ing this cathe­dral. The archi­tec­ture and detail­ing are stun­ning. It was built over sev­er­al cen­turies, from 1396–1770. and is in mixed Renais­sance and Goth­ic styles. You can read more about the Como Cathe­dral HERE.
  • Pho­tos 13, 14, 15, 16, 20 and 21 were tak­en while Car­o­line and I were wan­der­ing the streets and shops.
  • Pho­to 17 is inside the Munici­pio build­ing.

After we returned to Bel­la­gio from our won­der­ful time in Como we had a few hours to walk around Bel­la­gio, then get ready for din­ner at Al Veluu in Tremez­zo which was locat­ed across Bel­la­gio on Lake Como.

  • Pho­tos 1, 2 and 3 were tak­en of Bel­la­gio while wait­ing for the fer­ry. The sun was begin­ning to set and the light­ing was gor­geous.
  • Pho­tos 4 and 5 were tak­en from the fer­ry. Pho­to 4 is of our hotel from across the lake.
  • Pho­tos 6 and 7 I took while wait­ing for our dri­vers to pick us up and take us to Al Veluu.
  • Pho­tos 8, 9 and 10 is the view we had from our din­ner table.
  • Pho­to 11 is of me and  our roomie Chris Bard­s­ley. She is from the UK and Car­o­line and I just loved shar­ing a room with her. She was so fun.
  • Pho­tos 12 and 13 are just a few pho­tos of the inside of Al Veluu. It was sim­ply amaz­ing (yes I know this word is so being over used but hon­est­ly it is amaz­ing)
  • After din­ner we all loaded our­selves back into the vans to the fer­ry and road the it back to Bel­la­gio with full tum­mies and loads of mem­o­ries. One amaz­ing thing we all got to see while sit­ting at our table was a pro­pos­al. It was so sweet and I wish that adorable hap­py cou­ple who ever they are the best life has to offer. We all cheered and clapped for the new­ly engaged cou­ple to which the groom to be gave us a thumbs up and the bride to be waved her hand, which was now adorned with an engage­ment ring then wiped her tears. It was tru­ly spe­cial.
  • Once we were back in Bel­la­gio, Car­o­line, Lau­ra, Vic­to­ria and I went to the music room in the Grand Hotel Vil­la Ser­bel­loni and lis­tened to the musi­cians. Pho­tos 14 and 15 are just a glimpse of this gor­geous room. Chat­ting and laugh­ing with beau­ti­ful music in the back­ground was the per­fect way to end our day.
  • Pho­to 16 is a map of Lake Como. Bel­la­gio is locat­ed in the mid­dle of the upside down “Y”. Tremez­zo is direct­ly across from Bel­la­gio and Como is locat­ed at the bot­tom left of the upside down “Y”.

Tomor­row, I will share with you all that we did the last day of the event. I did not want it to end and none of us want­ed to leave.
