Our 2015 Italy Trip - Venice market

In the morning fresh produce and fish vendors open their booths. Wonderful pastry shops, chocolatiers, gelato and cheeses. 

This adorable box of tools is actually chocolate. How adorable.

These are sweets that look like fruits and veggies.

Hotel Metropole Bellagio

It's a two bedroom suite.

Our Italy Trip - Hiking along Lake Como

This morning we woke early and met up with our private guide for the day Fiorella. She is from the village Lenno. After taking the ferry across the lake to Tremezze she informed us we would be taking a little hike "up to that church." I thought she was joking until she took off UP the back streets. 

We hiked pretty steady only stopping for a few quick photo ops and made the hike in about 2 hrs. Our ascent (another hour) brought us down to the village Cadenabbia. We then continued walking into Villa Carlotta where we grabbed a quick bite to eat before boarding the ferry back to Bellagio. Below are a few of the pics we shot along the way.

Getting closer!

Back done for refreshments.
