Dreamy Lake Como
I am a Star Wars fan, my whole family is. When Anakin and Padma got married I wanted to know if the place was “CGI”d. It was one of the most beautiful place I have ever seen – if it was real, I want to see it with my own eyes!
I heard that George Clooney has a Villa there. It looks like it’s a big deal over there, especially when you’re taking a lake tour. I never really know why – until I saw the house. It’s beautiful.
The houses are all beautiful there, maybe it’s just because of the scenery. It’s like every house is perfectly put there by an invisible hand, arranged, painted and shown to the world of how magnificent his creation is!
There are places in this world that are blessed to be beautiful. I know this lake to be one of them. It has been well known for it’s villas built from the roman times, I guess because of its subtropical climate – way up north, by the Alps – it is indeed very rare.
The lake also boasts beautiful gardens, as you see – the terrace and garden where Padma and Anakin got married is just one of those attraction. In Bellagio, I walked in the beautiful garden of Villa Melzi d’Eril – (built by architect Giocondo Albertolli in 1808–10 as the summer residence of Duke Francesco Melzi d’Eril). Imagine having your summer evening walks in one of these gardens, for me – I think I will live a little longer! The fresh air, the aura it gives – the smell of the flowers and the breeze!
I was content just to be there. I did not want to go anywhere else. I never imagine it was just the beginning of an adventure. I was about to fall in love with Italy and it caught me off guard!
