Milan city was admittedly quite boring
So the next day we drove to Lake Como, which is located about an hour north-west of Milan. The lake is huge and shaped like an upside-down Y. Our first stop was Como town – south of the lake, on the west leg.
The night before we walked to a big supermarket and bought stuff for the trip:
– lots of juice (tomato, peach, pear)
and some other things I can’t remember
Sandals New Look
Bag Topshop (I THNK!)
Sandals Miss Selfridge
After getting a drink at a tiny ‘cafe’ inside the market we started to drive north along the lake to get to a town called Cadenabbia (or something like that) where we could take a car ferry across to Bellagio (it’s situated in the middle of the lake, sorta).
On the way to Cadenabbia
We stopped a few times to take photos – HEAPS of photos!
Here are some!
I can’t even remember how long it took to get to Cadenabbia
Swimming pool!! AAAAAAh
The car ferry was fun!
The breeze was so refreshing on a blazing hot day
LOVE hot days
I packed this velcro ball toy thing that I got from Sainsbury’s and so we had a fun time playing with it we got so exhausted!
Then we went down really close to the lake and dipped our feet in the water
BEST feeling ever
Do I see pink panties? HA HA
Something really exciting happens after this
The water was ice-cold!
And it was heaps of fun!!
From Bellagio we took another car ferry to a little town called Varenna, ending up on the east side of the lake. Having a car was so convenient because we drove farther up north and ended up at a park/green by the lake and it was so beautiful!
There were people sprawled all over
And boats and people swimming and a cafe
Went down by the rocks to play with water again
Had really yummy ice cream here! 🙂
Took loads more photos but had to pick only these few to post or it’ll be a bit much..
As the sun was setting it was time to drive down to the eastern leg of the lake, to a town called Lecco which really exceeded expectations as it wasn’t nearly as popular as all the other towns.
It was so lovely!
It reminded me a bit of Williamstown in Melbourne
Lots of restaurants and cafes lined the road by the lake
Sat by the lake with swans eating it
