Bellagio Tour around the lake

A lazy Sunday, the crowds started to merge into Bellagio around 10am , we decided to take a tour across the lake. Luca the boat owner told us a bit about the houses / mansions and points of interest around the lake. Most of the owners of the mansions are from Milan and the houses are used as holiday houses, one of the places is only used 2 weeks a year, another one was bought by a Russian who paid €48 million which is around $60 mil and has not been used.  Such a waste. 

There is a property here in Bellagio that was originally a 5 star hotel and was vacant for a few years, the new owner purchased it for a very large amount of money decided to bring it back to a 5 star standard, he is waiting to get certain permits as it has one of the main parks behind it, he has been waiting 7 years for the permit!! and it’s still vacant.

We had lunch at a small inlet Sala, Temp 30 

Next: Pasta, Chianti, & two kilo weight gain!!
