During Kate and Kent's visit, we also took the ferry and funicolare! We rode the ferry - stopping at Lecco and then re-boarding and riding on to Bellagio, with a picnic and some hiking around small lake towns in between. The weather was awesome - sunny and mostly clear, so our views of the lake were gorgeous. Lake Como is situated in (what we have been told) are the pre-Alps. It's one of the deepest lakes in Europe and is dotted with beautiful little Italian villages. The two-hour boat ride is definitely scenic!

We also took the cable car up to Brunate for an afternoon/evening of awesome views. Even though it was an overcast day, we left shortly after dark and saw the lights of Como from above, which was a special treat - it was amazing how much of town we could still see at night.
