Italian Lakes Walking Trip Tuesday, October 2, 2012
Lake Como
Leaving from the Villa Serbelloni (left) after lunch, we're off on a boat tour of part of Lake Como. A few of the more ambitious hikers in the group crossed the lake to go to a little hillside church (middle). The church is that little white spec in the middle of the photo. Meanwhile, our boat driver gave us the lowdown on who owned which lakeside villa.

(above) A friend of Francesca's, our city tour guide, called down from her balcony that she had just made a torte that she wanted to share. (below, right) Why a stairway? At the top is a villa/mansion. The owner wanted an unobstructed view and access to the lake.

After resting on our return from exploring, we were treated to a mini-concert by a men's choir prior to dinner. Amazing what a chef can do with a zucchini flower!
