Quaint and Characteristic…

Varenna is quiet and peaceful compared to the city of Milan which seems to never sleep. I was happy we had the chance to travel here before Dear started his responsibilities at the Conference. It wouldn’t have been enjoyable for me to travel here alone. Be forewarned that this post will be filled with lots of photos and few words.

Maybe you can tell by these whitecaps that it really was windy in Varenna on this day.

From Varenna we caught the train back to Milan stopped at the hotel to get new batteries for my camera and then headed out again to the Cathedral. We had a full day.

We’re having a quiet weekend for which I am thankful for as I recuperate more and more. It’s hard to believe that we’ll be celebrating Palm Sunday already. How’s your weekend shaping up?

  1. Oh, for heaven’s sake….this is beautiful! Several of these photos remind me of the countryside seen in “The Godfather” and “The Godfather, Part II”. (I actually think I see Fredo’s dead body bobbing around that little boat in the first picture! :-) ) The serenity conveyed in the photos is just amazing, Ellen. Thank you for sharing!!!

  2. WONDERFUL LOVELY PICTURES. CAN I SEE FLORENCE, VERONA, VENICE AND NAPLES. I LOVE THOSE ANCIENT CITIES?.. LOVE YOU

  3. This post contains some of the most charming scenes…exquisite and unlike anything one sees here in the States. Still haven’t reached the info I am looking for, but am shocked by how much I have missed.
