The small village and lake of Lecco, Italy

It was hard to find a parking place in Lecco but we managed to get rid of our rented car outside the village. We had to walk a few kilometers alongside the lake. This was refreshing, the wind and water provided a cool breeze.

In the village, kids were feeding swans on the edge of the lake. The water is crystal clear but very cold. We enjoyed the views and the mountains and decided to have lunch on a nice elevated terrace on a hill, overlooking the lake.

Het was niet eenvoudig een parkeerplaats voor onze auto in Lecco te vinden maar we geraakten hem kwijt iets buiten het dorp. We dienen echter wel enkele kilometers terug te wandelen langs het meer. De combinatie van zon, wind en water was echt verfrissend. 

In het dorp waren er enkele kinderen, zwanen aan de rand van het meer, te voederen. Het water is kristalhelder en koud. We genoten van de bergzichten en besloten te lunchen op één van de hoger gelegen terrassen met zicht op het meer.

  2. Oh my goodness, your pictures are gorgeous!!! My favorites are 2, 11, and the steeple. Plus you and Kristel. The water is so clear, and the black cliff so large, kind of like opposites. The cliff is so black that it looks made from coal! The first two pictures really showcase the cliff.
