This is my favourite place in the world. For years I wanted to visit Lake Como, it was always at the top of my list. And finally I got it right to visit a few years ago. I tell you I could easily have cancelled the rest of my trip and just stay on Lake Como for my whole holiday. And I could easily go and live there or spend at least a few weeks on the Lake.
You can expect at least 4 seasons in a day or more a day. But it is by far the most picturesque place in the world and jumping on the ferry, going from one side to the other visiting all the little villlages is the best day trip. I stayed in a gorgeous little hotel right on the lake. It cost next to nothing and was the best I have ever stayed in. The people don’t speak much english but they are so helpful and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The bus driver even stopped outside my hotel to drop me off specially because it was raining when I arrived.
I could easily go back tomorrow and just looking at these photo’s tonight has made me rather homesick for the place.
