Quinnipiac Men's Ice Hockey In Italy, Day 2: Practice In Switzerland and Tour of Bellagio

The Quinnipiac men's ice hockey team's tour of Italy continued on Monday, Aug. 12 with an early-morning practice at Bellinzona Rink in Lugano, Switzerland followed by a day in picturesque Bellagio. 

The Bobcats skated for an hour on the Swiss rink before embarking on a day trip to Bellagio, along the Lago di Como. The Bobcats visited the many shops in the hillside village before spending much of the afternoon at the beach. 

The team then took a mini-cruise from Bellagio to Lake Como as tour guides pointed out villas owned by movie star George Clooney and tycoon Richard Branson.

The Bobcats will play their first international competition on Tuesday, Aug. 13 when they take on AC Langenthal at Localnet Arena in Langenthal, Switzerland.
