“Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.”
The trip started in northern Italy. I've promised photographs, and I'll be sharing a post for each area we visited. I do not mean to minimize the trauma the east coast is enduring at the moment in the after-the-hurricane days. I don't know the right thing to do. Do I not post, as people start to dig out and pump out and rebuild and find loved ones and move sand? Or do I post? I shall post. I hope you enjoy the photos. I hope that you and your loved ones are safe. Be careful out there.
Lake Como | 337 Photos
After arriving in Milan we drove about 1.5 hours north to Bellagio, on Lake Como. We stayed two nights and absolutely adored the area. I was thrilled NOT to be driving as my husband deftly maneuvered the rental car through the narrow streets with stone walls at the sides. We had to push in the side mirrors, it was that tight. Italians drive fast, and they drive well, and it was exhilerating to watch. We stayed a tiny hotel with a path down to the lake amidst the mountains. One day, we parked and explored the nooks and crannies of Bellagio and took a quick ferry to two quaint little cities on the lake, Varenna and Menaggio. And don't worry, I won't make you watch a slide show of 5,000 photos like your Aunt Louise.
