  Argegno's hidden charm.
by tpal

The best way to appreciate Argegno is to leave your comfortable chair at the cafe and start walking up one the narrow lanes. A bit steeper than most, we found these to be amongst the most charming. Most were paved with this intersecting fan pattern of small square stones typical in much of the area. Almost entirely residential above the lakeside level, walkways were impeccably maintained. Potted red geraniums seemed to be the flowers of choice and were found virtually everywhere giving wonderful counterpoint to the stone and masonry. We spent a couple of hours just wondering about and getting lost.
