Today our travel is to Lombardy.

I suggest a hike truly suggestive and beautiful trip: let's go to Lake Como and relax in the enchanting garden of Villa d'Este!

 The Lake Como is the third largest basin in northern Italy; it has three branches with a curious shape of inverted epsilon.

Ideally located in the center of the Alps, it is really appreciated by visitors from the North who see in it a glimpse of the Mediterranean among the mountains.

A really surprising and fascinating landscape of innumerable shades. 

Hues of blue and green waters, rocky peaks covered with snow or with forests, villages built of stone castled between lake and mountains, cities rich in history and culture.

  If you like to enjoy an exciting and very charming walk, I suggest you visit the gardens of Villa d'Este. 

You know that in the park surrounding the Villa there is one of the longest-running plane trees of Lombardy, 500+ years old!

The countless varieties of plants make it a real botanical garden: chestnut, magnolia, wisteria, laurels, agaves, palms, cypresses, pines, oaks and many other trees which are flanked by jasmine, azaleas, camellias, hydrangeas, oleanders, rhododendrons and also daffodils, pansies, geraniums.

In short, a riot of colors and scents for a really surprising landscape and harmonious!

If you wish to enjoy a drink in total relax, I suggest you sit in the gazebo and contemplate the calm waters of the lake: a truly unique experience!

My personal experience was a day of poetry: the one of a place a bit magic in which sometimes you have to dip, a must-see destination during your holiday in the italian lakes.

Leisure me, this my tourism!
