For the second part of our nine day trip in Northern Italy, we made our way to Lake Como. After stopping in Limone Sul Garda along the way to get our first taste of the Italian lake life, we arrived in our home base of Varenna on Lake Como. Hiking up into the lake-side mountains and hopping around the coastal towns via the ferry, made for a peaceful and connected trip. And, we can't speak highly enough of Varenna. The small town offered us a serene setting and a quiet escape to come back to each day. Lake Como was everything we thought it would be and more!
