Enchanted by Lago di Como

This was my 4th visit to Italy but my first to Lake Como. I treated Mom to this trip to Italy and she just loved it - she's already making plans to go back.

While on Lake Como, we stayed in Varenna and visited Bellagio, Menaggio, Como and Lenno (briefly).

on our walk...

Just some lovely flowers planted into the wall...

The view during dinner

We walked all over the place and finally plunked down when we found a place with a good view...

    That fennicular wow! Can you answer a question - what was the weather temperature like in May? Was it warm enough for a swim in teh lake? Planning a visit in May 08 with my mom.

    Lovely view from your hotel balcony. A great place to explore with your Mom.

    Ah, the fiumelatte - love the idea of temporary rivers, vernal springs. Temporary but eternal. And I just love that pool of water amidst the rocks in your photo. What a great tip!
