Lake Como

In just about six weeks Ryan and I will be jetting off to Italy to spend 16 days in the Cinque Terre, Tuscany, Florence, and Venice.  I couldn't be more excited and will be checking quite a few experiences off my bucket list on this trip!  However, I know this will not be our last trip to Italy, one because we both absolutely love it, but two because I still need to visit the infamously chic Lake Como.

Lake Como has been a retreat for aristocrats and celebrities since the Roman times, and it is easy to understand why.  The lake -- surrounded by the mountains, hills, villas, and tiny villages and home to people such as George Clooney, Donatella Versace, and Madonna -- is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful lakes in Europe.  Sigh...until next time Italy!

And where would I stay on this gorgeous lake?  I have always thought going with a few couples and renting a luxury villa would be pretty amazing {I mean, check out this place - insane right?!}, but if it was just Ryan and I, I would love to stay at the infamous Grand Hotel Tremezzo.  A deluxe five-star art-deco hotel, it offers unparalleled views of the beautiful town of Bellagio and the mountains.  And one of the coolest parts?  A pool that floats effortlessly on the lake itself.  So glamorous...
