The lake district in northern Italy is a magical place, one of my favorites on this planet. It is the combination of nature, people, culture and cuisine that makes it unique and unforgettable. In September 2009, there was a small conference on Stresa that I had to visit, so we decided to jump on the opportunity, rent a car and spend three days hoping around Lago Maggiore. Above is a view of Laglio from the lake road.
The most unforgettable moment of the trip was our dinner in Isola dei Pescatori. We hired a taxi-boat and went for dinner to the this beautiful miniature island across Stresa. Due to the late season, we were only 6 visitors on the island, which made the experience even greater. One of the most romantic places on earth. I promised to return there in twenty years for another candle light dinner.
