We cruised around Lake Como, hopping from Varenna to Bellagio, then Bellagio to Menaggio, then back to Varenna. The weather couldn’t have been better, with bright warm skies and a gentle breeze from the north across the bluest of water.
We stayed in Perledo, up the hill from the better known town of Varenna, which is right on the lake. From our veranda, we could see the busy port, Perledo itself was a step back in time, with its tidy church and common washing house.
Kath and I have been touring northern Italy for nearly two weeks, and I haven’t posted any photos here yet. Here are scenes from the first place we went after renting a car: Lake Como. Our apartment had a gorgeous view of the lake from above Varenna.
