Lenno - Lago di Como

Started the day running
- there's not a running track
but was told that the main road away from Bellagio
is the place where people run
- towards Belaggio the main road is really narrow
in some places
so not an ideal for running
and the smaller roads are extremely steep,
so forgot those
.
After running had a refreshing swim
in the pool
The breakfast doesn't include into the room rate
but can be ordered a day before
.

Harmonious breakfast lounge
- good breakfast,
worth to have it!
.
Around 11am had a transportation to downtown
Bought a day-ticket for boats
- possible to travel between Bellagio,
Lenno, Tremezzo, San Giovanni,
Varenna & Menaggio
by boats and ferries
.
Decided to start with Lenno
.
Boat to Lenno
.
Lenno lies around the bay called "Baia di Venere",
formed by the peninsula Lavedo.
- several religious buildings with important works of art
- Villa Balbinello, built in 17th century,
has been in films like:
A Month by the Lake, 1995
Star Wars: Episode Attack of the Clones, 2002
Ocean's Twelve, 2004
Casino Royale, 2006
.

Well-kept narrow alleys
.

Olive trees in the garden of church San Stefano

Lunch at Vecchia San Stefano in Lenno
.

Tortelloni filled with asparagus & sage
- marvellous!
.
Grilled lavarello
- very good!
.
with grilled vegetables
- perfect lunch!

Vecchia San Stefano
.
In Lenno there are 1.800 inhabitants
.

After lunch took the Greenway
to Tremezzo
Greenway is a marked
partly coble stoned path
- lovely walk,
not easy in 40C...
