Beautiful.
No wonder the second one looks familiar, I didn't realize why until I read the caption regarding Star Wars II.

Interesting that you should post these images. I just saw a special on TV the other day that featured the Bellagio and lake Como. You are lucky to be in such a beautiful place. Nice images in this series.

Hi Elena.......

Wonderful images. They make the cement and glass city of NY look like a slum :)

Elena, these are beautiful shots! Being a fan of Star Wars, I especially like the "palace retreat" shots. I was amazed at the scenery in the movie and feels like yours do it equal justice! Nicely done!!

Elena, great photos of a wonderful place that "unfortunately" have seen many times but during winter.

Lugano is a very picturesque place and you have captured it well. :wink:

It's been a week since I came back, but you have no idea how I'm hating the city, which I've always sang praises to :biggrin:

The only reason I found out that this is the Star Wars house is because I've done a search on "Como" on PBase and someone was nice enough to put the caption under the photo. I guess you can tell that I'm rather impartial to Star Wars, eh? :smile:

Gordon, I've looked through so many photos of Como before my trip and no matter how beautiful they still don't do that place justice. However, I did think that Bellagio itself was a bit blown out of proportion. It's just another beautiful village on the lake with lots of hotels and even more tourists.

I used to think the same. In fact, I always said that I'll choose Paris over any other place I've never been to, and then came Como .... :biggrin:
