Just when we thought Venice was the most beautiful place we would visit in Italy, Varenna may have beaten it into second place.

... seemed like a spa vacation and so relaxing. We had a 90 minute train to Milan and then transferred on to the train that would take us to Lake Como (a 60 minute train). As Lake Como started to come into view - it was glorious. To see the sun shining on that lake like crystals dancing on the water - again it seemed like a slice of heaven. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner in Varenna that night - a well deserved appetite had been worked up on that day! What an ...
