Lifestyles Of The Rich And Famous At Lake Como’s Varenna.

Lake Como's Varenna

Lake Como's Varenna

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Italy is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Remember my Postcards From Positano post? You can easily see why I keep returning to this country and I’m beyond excited that I’ll be back again next month.!

When I reunited with “first European love” last June (yes, I treat cities and countries like boyfriends), I set out to discover the Lake Como area and all of her pretty towns. Varenna turned out to be my absolute favorite.

As I stalked George Clooney, I came across this beautiful villa that could easily be featured in an episode of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. As I stood there, I was suddenly overcome with delusional visions of living there for the rest of my life with a handsome, rich, intelligent, kind, romantic Italian man. We’d take morning boat rides on the lake, afternoon walks along the water and candlelit dinners on the terrace each evening …

A girl can dream right?
