|I don't remember the names of these towns, but they're right across the lake from Bellagio|
Let me just say my husband is a hero for his driving during this trip. Especially around Lake Como. The streets are N-A-R-R-O-W and the tour busses abound. You never knew when you'd see one whipping around a tiny corner and you'd have to slam on the brakes. Whew. One reason we didn't want to drive around the lake any more than we had to, despite the beautiful scenery!
We found our hotel (about 1/2 a mountain up from the lake), dropped our stuff, and immediately went on a hike for a good lake view. We weren't disappointed!

|Our hotel, where the menu is in three languages, but not all hotel employees speak all three!|
Jon and I were super excited to find something on the menu that had so far eluded us. Risotto! We both love the recipe for risotto that's been passed down from Jon's grandmother, and we really wanted to try it in Italy. (His grandmother's family also emigrated to the US from Italy.) It was delicious! We were thinking of you, Nana Rose!

What a beautiful country! We loved our time there, and it's been wonderful sharing the journey with you, faithful blog readers. This is the last post for Italy, but definitely not the last post on our travels in Europe. See you again soon!
