Save Place
Via Regina, 40, 22012 Cernobbio CO, Italy
The 152-room Villa d’Este resides about an hour north of Milan in the quiet surrounds of Lake Como. The 16th century palatial estate has 25 acres of manicured Italian gardens, and it’s been a favorite escape for Hollywood types (Alfred Hitchcock...
Save Place
23900 Lecco, Province of Lecco, Italy
The place where Italians go to vacation. Simple as that. I've been fortunate enough to travel to Europe many times and often to the charming must-go-to destinations. But those who have been there before know that some, most, of the best parts of...
Save Place
Gandria, 6978 Lugano, Switzerland
Behold Gandria! When my Airbnb host first suggested I visit Gandria I was a little unsure, mostly because of it's name. But boy was she right, this little village navigable exclusively by foot was so picturesque and quiet. Situated on a hill just...
Save Place
Milan, Metropolitan City of Milan, Italy
We finally found it! Officine Del Gelato Milano; a modern, absolutely delicious gelato parlor. They had us coming back (three times in one day) until we had tried every flavor—including every kind of gelato popsicle. It was a guilt-free treat and...
Save Place
Lugano, Switzerland
Lugano, Switzerland is arguably one of the most beautiful places in the world. With the Mediterranean climate of the Ticino region and the Swiss-Italian culture, Lugano is not your average stadt der Schweiz. Palm trees sway and colorful flowers...

45 minutes out of Milan is Lake Como. Add it to your side trip. Spend a week you will not run out of things to do. There are wonderful lake towns sprinkled all the way to Switzerland. You take one of the boats out of the city of Como and travel up...
Save Place
23829 Varenna LC, Italy
When I traveled to Lago di Como (Lake Como), I stayed in the town of Bellagio. One morning, I took the ferry to Varenna. As I walked a path by the lake, I entered a covered part of the path that was cool and dark. There were open places along this...
Save Place
6633 Lavertezzo, Switzerland
It is the 60th birthday of a Swiss native and this is where she wants to go. A place where water can be drunk straight from the stream. A place where her family came every summer, to a small cottage across the double arched bridge, to live the...
Save Place
Lake Maggiore
Lake Maggiore, the second largest Italian lake after Lake Garda, holds the three jewel-like Borromean Islands, Isola Bella, Isola Madre, and the quaint and picturesque, Isola dei Pescatori.
Save Place
Piazza del Porto, 4, 22021 Bellagio CO, Italy
We rented a boat for the day on Lake Como... Waiting to pick it up!
Save Place
Via Giovanni Boccaccio, 9, 20123 Milano MI, Italy
As a connoisseur of all things sweet, I was drawn to Shockolat's cioccolata calda or hot chocolate a mere three hours after arriving in Milan. Rich, creamy, and thick, it is hands down the best hot chocolate I have ever had. In fact, it is so...
Save Place
Franciacorta is a few minutes drive from Lake Iseo; an enchanting hotel and restaurant, off the beaten track. Located in the centre of Lombardy, a half-an-hour drive from Brescia and Bergamo, and less than an-hour from Milan, it is well worth a...
