2009 Trip - Italy - Planning, Part 6

Lake Como To-Do List

Our second stop in Italy is Lenno on Lake Como where we will spend four days. We have a few things we would like to do while we are there.

When we were in Lenno in 2006, one of the highlights was a tour of Villa del Balbianello. The setting is so beautiful, and we would really like to revisit the Villa. Here is one of the photos I took in 2006:

Bill has requested that we take a day trip by train into Switzerland. Since Como is only a few miles from the Swiss border, that shouldn't be a problem. So, maybe just a short trip for lunch and back again. Or maybe the Bernina Express. Guess I need to do a little more research on that!

I have read a little bit about Isola Comacina, the only island on Lake Como. It sounds like an interesting place to visit. A restaurant on the island, Locanda dell'Isola Comacina, serves a multi-course meal that has been on the menu since 1947!

Last but certainly not least, I would like to have a George Clooney sighting. That would really make my day! Here are some photos of his Villa Oleandra in Laglio, Lake Como.

Of course, I read in People Magazine that David Beckham is subletting the villa, so maybe George won't be around.

That sure would be fun to see George. He was in Bellagio a couple of days before I arrived there a few years ago on his bike.

Terry (teaberry):

Nancy, it sounds like you have a fabulous trip in store for you.

If you see George, give him a full frontal hug from me!

nancyhol:

Oh Terry, I would LOVE to do that!

Barb Cabot:

This is going to be so much fun!
