We made our home away from home in a small and charming bed and breakfast in the lakeside village of Varenna. These were the views from the balcony of our room.
Every meal was a feast and there is nothing like breakfast with a view like this in the background!
And one of the best things about traveling during this time of year is the fact that there were so few people around. The days were sunny and the temperatures in the high fifties and low sixties. Perfect!
