My sister is planning a trip in late September to Lake Como, among other places. I am going over the various places I visited last September ... the views, the food, the shopping ... it's without a doubt, one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. I fell in love. I kept thinking, why does anyone ever leave this place?! I did, of course, because Rome was in my near future. If you ever get the chance ... GO! Here are a few pictures from Varenna and the Villa Carlotta across the lake. Dreamy. If I were George Clooney, I would have a place there too.
The precise location of heaven on earth has never been established
but it may very well be right here.
