Lake Como- not just a day trip!
When we were reading our guide on Milan, there was a little footnote box at the end recommending Lake Como as a day trip. We always wanted to go to Lake Como as we heard it was really nice. Really nice?- It is absolutely beautiful!!!!! And after taking our day trip, we both said this is a place to spend a few days! The town of Lake Como itself is as cute as can be, then you have this awesome lake. Best way to describe it: long and lanky with lots of inlets/peninsulas with rapidly rising hills/peaks with the cutest little towns you can imagine nestled in the crevices of each hill/peak. All this accessible by boats that criss-cross the lake! We loved it! And when we saw the town of Bellagio, we had to go! We figured the Bellagio Hotel in Vegas was patterned after it- it is,in a way. Sadly, when reviewing my pictures, they did't come out very well as it was hazy, so you won't get the full feel of the beauty. But a little is better than none:-)

Lunch on Lake Como: Wine (of course) and sandwiches of Parma ham and local cheese
