…a very good place to start.
We’ll start at Como since it comes before Duomo and because we can see the Alps from there and they inspire me to want to sing all the songs from The Sound of Music.
We arrived by train in Varenna on beautiful Lake Como. The train ride was just about an hour from Milan.
The walk into the town gave us some promising views. The day was sunny and clear but very very windy and cold. It was the kind of wind with gusts that threw you off balance at times. This beautiful town is probably bustling in season but our time here was off season with very few people about and very few shops open.
We chose to eat at Ristorante Borgovino on one of the narrow lanes of Varenna. We were happy with our choice. Dear and I were the only ones in the restaurant and were treated well.
We both chose risotto dishes. Dear had his with Lake Como Perch and I had the special with asparagus. Delicious.
More from the narrow streets and waterfront views of Varenna soon.
I’m happy to report I’m feeling a tad better today. I’m watching snow falling softly out my window. It threw me off guard when I first opened the blinds this morning to see everything covered with a light dusting of snow. How’s the weather in your part of the world?
