Hi Al,

What is to stop you from making reservations now and cancelling them if need be? From my experience, there is usually no charge up to a few days before departure. This would allow you as much choice as possible.

We stayed at the Hotel Belvedere in Bellagio and although it was a fair walk from the village, it did have lovely grounds and gorgeous lake views. The dining room served dinner which was fine, not spectacular, but well priced. If I had it to do over again, I would definitely stay in the village by the lake. But this hotel served us well.

I think I still owe you a trip down French Food memory lane from our trip last September.
