Lake Como, Italy with Sharon – Day 1

School lets out and where do we head first?? Why, Lake Como area to see Melo and Franca, of course. We just love spending time with them at their restaurant and in their gardens.

Upon arrival, we find Melo outside the gate of the restaurant and he invites us in before they open to see all the changes he has made to the gardens. Just beautiful with lots of fresh veggies growing. After a short visit, we decided to head up to the hotel to drop our bags and then take a long, hot walk down from the hills of Tremezzo to Cadenabbia to catch the ferry boat to Bellagio for a little shopping. Too warm for a hike today. OK, I will admit it, Cadenabbia was a bit further then I remembered, BUT we certainly did work up an appetite for Melo’s pizza.

We explored the shops of Bellagio, including paying a visit to our friends that own Polenti. We love to visit with this family and purchase beautiful Murano glass bowls from them. Sharon also found some beautiful treasures too. We were off to the leather shop and wine shop before heading back to the boat.

We ended the evening with dinner at Melo’s before the kids cooled off in the pool at the hotel.
