Village of Varenna // Lake Como, Italy
Just a short walk from the ferry stop there is this little idyllic cove with lots of shops and cafes & restaurants. Come summer I reckon this place would be quite busy. We stopped and had lunch at one of the many restaurants all hustling for your business. Our one requirement was whether they served Aperol spritz. It’s a common drink in Italy, the home of prosecco on which the spritz is based. We discovered them during our trip and had had many before the end of it. I love the contrasting colours of the flowers, houses, trees and lake in this photo, and don’t forget the snow capped mountains which are probably the Swiss Alps.
