Italy by Rail and Ship: Menaggio Meanderings

Ferry ride from Varenna for a half day trip to Menaggio, another beautiful small town on Lake Como.  We hiked up on some amazing footpaths to grand villas, an old castle and church, and along an ancient Roman path to a tiny fishing village.  Photos can’t capture all the magic and inspiration, it must truly be experienced so please make a trip and visit this place!
