June 2017

Looking northward from Villa Balbianello June saw us travelling to Italy to spend a couple of weeks touring the Lakes. Here is a shot looking up lake Como from Villa Balbianello, a familiar location for movie makers.
In all we visited Lake Garde, Como and Maggiore plus a day trip to Lake Orta.

Count Guido Monzino's desk Count Guido Monzino's sled Here we see Count Guido Monzino's desk at villa Balbianello and the sled that took him to the North Pole. He was an avid explorer who restored the villa to how we see it today.

Model of Isola Bella A model of Isola Bella, the island of the Borromeo family, famous for its gardens. Definitely worth a visit.

Coffee time looking out over Lake Orta Enjoying a latte machiato with Isola San Giulio in the background.
