I am headed out to Vegas this weekend for Virtuoso Travel Week…to say I am excited would be an understatement. The week long event is being held entirely at my favorite Vegas hotel, The Bellagio. So, not surprisingly, I have Bellagio on my mind.
But the Bellagio I am dreaming of today is not in Vegas…It is a village in Italy, which has been inhabited since the prehistoric days.
Bellagio, Italy is a small village on Lake Como…and one of the prettiest towns in all of Italy…which is, of course, saying a lot given the many beautiful towns in Italy.
Let’s take a little virtual vacay to Lake Como and the village of Bellagio…
And, if resident of nearby Cernobbio, George Clooney, doesn’t invite you to stay with him, then you might want to stay at the stunning, Grand Hotel Villa Serbolloni, in Bellagio:
C’mon guys…Mr. Clooney is no fool…wouldn’t a summer vacation to Bellagio be pretty amazing? What is the object of YOUR wanderlust today??

Oh, if I had the money just to stay in a humble place there and walk and walk all day long there! YES, this is where I must go next. HI SANDY!
The enchanted home says
NOW your talking….wow is that ever gorgeous!!! So beautiful…THAT Bellagio is so much more my kind of Bellagio:) Enjoy your weekend, I bet you are going to have so much fun!
I Dream Of says
Gorgeous, Sandy. I've always wanted to go. Waiting for that invitation from Mr. Clooney, but alas it hasn't arrived! I'm a big fan of lake life and an Italian lake is all the better!
We are buttoning up plans for an Iceland/Scotland getaway… but Italy sure would be lovely!
Have fun in Vegas – I'm sure you will learn all kinds of wonderful travel tips! XO
Heather Lindstrom says
I saw we experiment and see if Mr. Clooney would invite us over for a glass of vino next time we are in Italy. We'll rent a boat and do a couple of drive-bys. LOL! Gorgeous pics. Have a fabulous weekend Sandy! xx
Now that's my kind of Bellagio. What a gorgeous place a love the views. Hope you have a wonderful time at the other Bellagio…

MY wander lust………….is taking me to the grocery store today!LADIES lunch here tomorrow!You enjoy……..
You asked for any of our favorites: The Old Edwards Inn & Spa in Highlands, NC. We discovered it 3 years ago and just completed our FIFTH stay. It's fair to say we're in LOVE. Beautiful elegant European feeling mountain town. But the Hotel is the most amazing. I can recommend the newly completed 'Falls Cottages' in particular. They have a good website to check it all out.
Sign me up!!! Actually we spent last week discussing our 2016 trip to Spain to walk The Way of St. James. I'll be getting in touch with you for Spain advice!
The top photo is Varenna, where to boat to Belaggio departures. Also very pretty!

I see someone else also noticed that the top photo is of Varenna…a beautiful town that I was lucky enough to be married in back in 2009! Oh what a beautiful area…*sigh*.
