Lake Como has it all: a mountain view, palm trees, tasty wine and of course, a body of water. I took a day trip here back in March. From Milan, it's only a one hour train away so, how could I not visit?
Aside from eating, drinking, and hopping between villages on a boat, there really isn't much else to do in this area which is actually refreshing. It gave me time to unwind, enjoy the sunset, and brainstorm the possibilities of how, and if, I'll ever afford a villa here.
