Flashing back to my Italian Summer of 2017, I would like to do something new.
I would like to offer you a photo-essay of Lake Como and its stunning views from different heights.
Located within one and a half hour drive North from Milan, Lake Como is tucked in between beautiful Italian Alps.
Let me guide you from the lake all the way up to the top of mountains.
I started off with a boat ride. When its 30 degrees outside, being on the water does make me happier.
Lake Como has attracted artists and celebrities for hundreds of years and its famous villas come as a result of that.
A lake of glacial origin is 425 m deep. Breath in the fresh air and enjoy views of architectural heritage of Lombardi region.
Next, lets hop on to a Funicolare that is made to be 45 degrees angle.
Hold your breath as views will get more dramatic soon.
As the journey continues, I suddenly realise how big the lake is.
The funicular railway connects the city of Como with the village of Brunate.
Many Italians own their summer houses up in the Brunate village.
Funicular railway itself is a glorious view.
Red roofs are traditional for Italian buildings.
Walk up a bit more along the charming cobblestone road.
Mesmerizing view from the top of the mountain will be worth your exercise.
And of course it wouldn’t be Italy without a church on the very top of the mountain.
From here, higher than us only birds can fly.
My journey of one of the most breathtaking lakes in the world is over and I hope that yours is just set to begin soon.
