Italian Adventure Part One

Lake Como might once have been the playground for European aristocrats, but this past week two lowly touristas from Nashville, Tennessee, were charmed beyond measure by the loveliness of the Master Creator Himself. We literally ate, drank and breathed the beauty and never quite had our fill.  Here's why.

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!

We spent the first day exploring Varenna and Day Two we took the ferry to Bellagio and Menaggio, two neighboring lakeside towns that are every bit as charming as one might imagine. I kept pinching myself during this leg of our Italian adventure to be sure that I wasn't dreaming.

   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!
