Lake Como ( Torno, Cernobbio & Bellagio)

I am almost at a loss for words to describe just how much I loved this place. It is both relaxing and invigorating... beautiful and majestic. I could easily live here. I loved Tuscany and seeing where our family lives and that was my favorite part of the trip. However, Lake Como owns a piece of my heart. Never has my spirit felt more at peace and more free than the few days I was able to spend in this enchanting spot.

We stayed in the small village of Torno. Our hotel was down about 200 steps and each step simply brought you that much closer to the beauty that is the lake. We stayed at a small family run hotel that was directly on the water. It had no bells and whistles. It had fantastic food and views for days. To me, that is perfection. Also, this is where Robert DeNiro stays when he comes. If it is good enough for me...it must be good enough for him;)

On our first full day we took the ferry over to Cernobbio. This just happens to be where George Clooney was filming a commercial the day before. And where there was a political summit going on which led to the most spectacular fireworks show...pretty much in history. I loved this charming village. Great shopping and our meal was one of my favorites of the trip.

The second full day we spent two hours on the ferry on the way to Bellagio. It was the best way to take in all the small villages along the lake and so many new places we long to explore. Bellagio was a little too 'touristy' for me. Very busy but Tony and I walked to the very tip where there was a small park and the view was absolutely stunning. Words, nor even pictures, could ever do it justice. 

Here are a few shots from our stay.
