02. Lake Como, Lombardy
The Italian lakes are regarded as one of the most beautiful on this planet. Lake Como in particular has been highly regarded since Roman Times. It is a lake which is worth visiting a thousand times. Its dualistic climate offers a snow-capped mountain view while being able to climb palm trees. It is indeed a place for relaxing drives if you do not go in summer. The gentle climate allows wine to be produced and a wide range of both Alpine and Mediterranean flowers flourish here. In summer there is a music festival, with a focus on chamber music.
