This is a view from our lovely hotel window,  we stayed the first few days in Como with out the family. Como is the biggest city in the in the lake region,  lots to do. This a picture of there Duomo which means church. Everything is picture perfect or almost as if it was painted on a canvas.

Lake Como is near the Swiss border, so some of the food and architecture have a Swiss vibe to it, here in the city square one of the building resembles a chalet.

Most of the architecture in Como is very colorful, hues of peach, turquoise, and blues.

Lots of bikes everywhere, we rented two bikes for our stay in Como and biked everywhere.

  1. I LOVE your photos. Even the simplest things seem very beautiful- doors and shutters and bikes! I hope to go to Italy in the near future.

    1. The shutters are everywhere, makes me want to paint everything pastel colors, don’t be surprise if you see a few projects of mine in colors of the

  2. Love your pictures…you just made me want to go to Italy! Thanks for sharing with the Thursday Blog Hop!

    1. Its worth the trip, but my advice is take a direct route to Rome and then take a train to Milan, I got stuck twice from JFK over night!I always travel direct but this time to save a few bucks I got stuck, I will never fly JET Blue again lol.

  3. Did you take the cruise? ( and pass by George Clooney’s house lol )
    Gorgeous photos – makes me want to go back !

    1. I did go on a cruise on the lake to see a villa and we passed George Clooney house, nothing special compared to the other villas.. I love it there and I’m going back.. the hotel was small like you said, but clean and updated, If i go back to como I’ll stay at an apartment.. Also stop by Fabulous Friday tonigt or tomorrow

  4. I am in love with Italy. We visited Tuscany twice and saw some of north western Italy but never the lakes. My husbands family is from an area north of the lakes and he’s been there but not me. I can’t wait to go back. Beautiful pictures! We will have to add Lake Como to the list. Can’t wait to see Part 2!

    1. You should go visit Lake Como, its just beautiful, Bellagio is the best, people are so nice! Which town was your husbands family from!
