Unfortunately, I haven’t spent much time in Italy but the time I have spent included a leisurely few days around lovely Lago Maggiore.
For this edition of Travel Photo Thursday, I am sharing a picture taken many years ago while I was on my honeymoon in Northern Italy on Lago Maggiore.
Lago Maggiore is a glacial lake in Northern Italy. Part of the Italian Lake District, Maggiore is in a beautiful location and offers beaches, a Mediterranean climate, palm trees, beautiful lakeside cities and the Alps as your backdrop! This region is as inviting as it sounds.
In the distance you see one of the Borromean Islands, Isola Bella. This island is still owned by the Borromeo family and has been the meeting place for many Heads of State. The island is a great place to spend and afternoon touring it’s Baroque Palace and wandering the gardens as they slope down to lake level.
For more great pictures, make sure to look into Budget Travelers Sandbox.
Every Thursday they post new photos from their travels and invite others to join in!
Maybe I’ll see you there.
