We just got home from Italy and the trip was absolutely amazing! We tried to visit several places – easy to do by taxi, train or boat. Here is my Lake Como travel guide of restaurants, where we stayed and fun things to do if you have a trip coming up!

Lake Como travel guide:

Villa Maria Taglione

We rented the Villa Maria Taglioni in Blevio for our group and it was amazing!  This is the view of the Villa from the water.

Always love quality time with my sweet dad!  This was right before dinner at the villa one night – I wore these comfy linen pants, a simple tank and pretty sandals.

Hiking from Bruate to Torno.  This was about a 2.5 hour hike with incredible views – I’m scared of heights and was definitely nervous/challenged during the first half but the path widened toward the end!  It was a good way to conquer my fear and was really rewarding!

The Church of San Giovanni in Torno.  The Sunday morning service was in Italian – so beautiful.

tumi bag

This Tumi bag was a new purchase for the trip and I highly recommend it if you don’t like to check a bag – it expands to fit so much!  (purses, shoes, toiletries, makeup, sweaters etc.) I also used this small Tumi converter to charge my phone and apple watch.
