As you may have seen on my Facebook page, the last week of March I had the opportunity to visit Venice, Lake Garda, Lake Como and finish in Milan. Most people think I’m on vacation but I am actually shopping new experiences for my clients. You may have seen my last blog, Why My Travels Benefit My Clients, that outlined what I discovered for my clients in Venice. This blog explores some of the experiences I had in the Garda and Como areas.
In Lake Garda –
Drink Wine.This isn’t exactly a new concept in Italy and the villa winery we visited was not in Lake Garda but on the way there. I had to include because it was like no place I’ve ever visited. Villa della Torre Allegrini was purchased by a woman who lived nearby as a girl and vowed to make it hers someday. It is spectacular with gigantic fireplaces, delicious food and, of course, vino.
Relax.We were able to stay one night at LeFay Resort & Spa. Situated on top of a mountain with magnificent views of the lake and mountains, this spa is one of the best in the world. I think a nice 2-3 day addition to any visit to Italy. The rooms are high tech, the service friendly and the spa treatments are to die for! We were also treated to a cooking lesson making a regional favorite, gnocchi. A perfect mix of relaxation and fun!
In Lake Como –
Art. When we visited Lake Como we did an all day tour; taking in sights like Villa del Balbianello and Villa Carlotta. We also took a watercolor class. Set on the shores of Lake Como, a local artist gave us the opportunity to let our creativity flow. Frankly, I thought I would be bored but you really get in the zone as you quietly contemplate nature. One of the most unexpectedly memorable activities I’ve ever done.
These are just a few of the activities I did while in Lakes Garda and Como areas. If none of these sounds interesting to you, no problem! Your trip is always custom-designed, so call me to talk about exactly what you would like to do in Italy and I can make it happen!
