Today adventure is an afternoon boating on Lake Como. 34 degrees today so we have hired a boat for 4 hours and having a picnic lunch on Lake Como. We rent a boat from Varenna then boated down to Lierna across to Vassena up to Bellagio down to Lezzeno across to Isola Comanacina up to Santa Abbondio across to Bellano then back to Varenna. What an amazing place with the mountains as a backdrop and the outstanding lakeside Villa’s like Villa Balbianello, as seen in Casino Royale. On the way to Lierna we came across George Clooney’s Riva with the driver waiting to pick him up. Just so peaceful not sure what it would be like on a weekend but was great today. Must say a boat is the only way to see this area and the water was crystal clear and refreshing from the heat, but still Rose didn’t want to go in for a swim.
