Lake Garda

Jerry had a four day weekend my first full weekend on the ground. We found a gorgeous Airbnb on the mountain above Torri del Benaco. It had a pool with a million dollar view and hosts who were just precious, Beatrice and Harold. We exchanged emails and we definitely plan to return to their home. We explored several smaller villages. It’s a good thing we had to walk everywhere because the food and wine were most excellent. I highly recommend this location to anyone who wants a short trip away from Vicenza. It was 1:20 to the house, but did include some scary, narrow hairpin curves. I’m officially in love with Lake Garda.

We visited Lake Garda and enjoyed outings on the east side of the lake in Torri del Benaco, Albisano, Castelleto, and Bardolino.

What’s behind these doors?

I am obsessed with all the old doors, knockers and letter posts I’m seeing in Italy. There must be hundreds of thousands around here that are just beautiful. Here are my faves starting from #day4.
