I visited Lake Como four years ago and missed it. Watching and listening to Laura reminded me why I loved it so much! She showed places I didn't go to while there, through video clips and pictures. It was almost as good as being there! Excellent!
As usual Dr. Benitti has me wanting to pack and leave immediately. She had us imagining we were taking a cruise up the lake and exploring all the locations and it was just lovely! Can't wait to go and see it for myself.
My husband and I spent an entire day touring Lake Como as part of a Tauck tour. The day was wonderful and very well planned with various stops, luncheons, and shopping time in Bellagio. What we didn't get was all the rich history behind the towns and villas that Laura Benitti provided. I really loved this presentation. I learned about the "Balcony of Italy" and the amazing views available from that nearby stop. I learned about the little village of Nesso which now I must go see. I loved the way Laura wove in the quotes of how others had described their time on Lake Como-Mark Twain - Leoonardo Da Vinci, to name a couple. Laura wove her beautiful photographs of the landscape and villas together with words, and maps for an outstanding and really charming virtual tour of Lake Como. I had an inkling that I should return to Lake Como before but now I know that I must! Thank you Laura!
As always, Laura's presentations are thorough and interesting - chocked full of useful information
