Just when we thought Venice was the most beautiful place we would visit in Italy, Varenna may have beaten it into second place. Neither of us can get our heads round the fact that we are actually seeing what's around us. The apartment is amazing and the views from the balcony alone are worth the trip.

It's not much more and if you choose second class, you will most likely stand (bc there are no seats) in the aisle of the train sweating for a full hour. It. Was. Awesome.
