Bellagio, Lake Como, Italy

Everywhere that beauty glows you are,
Everywhere an orchid grows you are,
Everything that's young and gay, brighter than a holiday,
Everywhere the angels play you are.

You're like Paris in April and May
You're New York on a silvery day.
A Swiss Alp as the sun grows fainter,
You're Loch Lomond when autumn is the painter.
You're Moonlight on a night in Capri,
And Cape Cod looking out at the sea,
You're all places that leave me breathless,
And no wonder, you're all the world to me.

You're Lake Como when dawn is aglow,
You're Sun Valley right after a snow.
A museum, a Persian palace,
You're my shining Aurora Borealis
You're like Christmas at home by a tree,
The blue calm of a tropical sea.
You're all places that leave me breathless,
And no wonder, you're all the world to me.

Lake Como was one of those destinations we all wished we had more time to enjoy..  Our apartment was very comfortable and in a beautiful location; though I'm sure there are no unattractive locations on Lake Como.  

We were up in the hills about a 5 minute drive to the center of the town.  It was about a 20 minute walk, but no one wanted to take their life in the hands by walking it

Every night (all night) we enjoyed lightening shows over the lake.  The side of the apartment facing the lake was all glass, so we could comfortably rest in bed and see the show.
