Hiking in Bellagio

Monday, August 24, 2009

Saturday walk
Bellagio has an area that extends from app. 200m at sea level
to reach the peak of Monte San Primo at 1.680m
Bellagio is divided into 22 small hamlets
that are all extremely characteristic .
Walked up to Vergonese,
then up and down through Mulini del Perlo,
Visgnola, Regatola, Villa Giulia, Oliveiro…
These are all hamlets of Bellagio

Saw many green houses
No idea what is the name of this plant
with flowers and fruit at the same time
Lunch in Pescallo at La Pergola
Entrance to La Pergola
View of the lake Como
As a starter had caprese
- too much mozzarella, heavy one
As a main course had a local dish:
fried pesce persico (perch filets)
with rise & curry sauce!
- very good!
Don’t know how they had made the rice so tasty!
Boats in Pescallo
The cobble stoned paths went up & down
Pink house & pink flowers
Continued to walk to the downtown,
had an stracciatella ice cream
and sat down for a moment at Punta Spartivento
- the end of the peninsula
Punta Spartivento
Someone's villa in the end of the peninsula
Didn't choose the easiest way back to the hotel...
Again took a small path up & down, steep steps etc.
- not easy but very pretty

The path went through a farm
