Lake Maggiore 2018

My 2018 vacation was to Italy and Switzerland, tagging along on a friend’s trip to a wedding. The lake area is breathtaking with no shortage of beautiful old world hotels, fantastic gardens and wonderful restaurants.

We stayed at the Villa Crespi in Orta San Giulio (on the smaller Lake Orta) and drove around to see the things we wanted to. Aside from staying in this moorish Relais & Chateaux property, our mission in this area revolved around seeing the Borromeo Islands with their luxurious gardens and stunning villas.

A few of my favorite photographs are shown below.
