Arriving after a spectacular ferry trip, Bellagio is a village perfectly situated lakeside at the junction of all three legs of Lake Como, and the Hotel Silvio is the perfect place to stay. We had a well-appointed room with a private balcony overlooking the lake, where we enjoyed a spectacular sunset each day with a glass of red in hand. The restaurant was superb, starting with a welcoming Ciao and breakfast buffet each morning that was hard to beat. So much so that we found ourselves returning night after night to enjoy the evening's dazzling dining experience, and chef's recommendation. The village is an easy and picturesque walk lakeside, so it was great to leave the hassle of driving/parking behind and just enjoy all that Bellagio delivers: great local shopping, traditional italian coffee in the morning and Aperol Spritz & snacks in the afternoon at the many cafes and restaurants that line the shore. The staff at Hotel Silvio's were always friendly and helpful with any enquiry. What a spectacular introduction to the location!
