Map of Kogarah for 211 5 BELLAGIO LAKE COMO Bellagio Cradled by cypress-spiked hills on the tip of the Triangolo Lariano the triangle of mountainous land between the Como and Lecco branches of the lake BELLAGIO has been called the most beautiful town in Italy. It’s not hard to see why. With a promenade planted with oleanders and lime trees, fin-de-si cle hotels painted shades of butterscotch, peach and cream, a spectacular mid-lake location and a crumbling core of stepped, cobbled alleyways, Bellagio is the quintessential Italian Lakes town. This little place has a long history. The Roman statesman Pliny the Younger may have had a villa on Bellagio’s promontory in the first century AD. The village is first mentioned in 835 as Belasio, and also appears as Bellaxio, Belacius and Bislacus; despite inevitable associations with modern Italian bella (beautiful), its name derives more prosaically from bi-lacus, Latin for between the lakes. Bellagio’s strategic location ensured its success throughout the medieval period, and by the early 212 LAKE COMO BELLAGIO nineteenth century, the wealthy families of Lombardy like their Roman forebears were coming here simply to relax. The waterfront Bellagio’s first hotel, the Genazzini, opened in 1825; its second, the Florence, opened in 1852. The two flank Bellagio’s scenic waterfront to this day, and passenger boats dock midway between them (the Genazzini is now the Metropole, with a prominent sign commemorating its origins).
