Northern Italy offers seductively beautiful lakes and ruggedly majestic mountains—with plenty of charming towns tucked in the coves and valleys. This week, Rick Steves’ Europe guide and Italian lakes district resident Patricia Fannon Avolio cruises with us across Lake Como and guides us along Varenna’s sleepy harbor, romantic promenade, and wisteria-drenched villas. Then, together we ascend into Italy’s Dolomites to wander the cobbled lanes of Kastelruth, sample the local folk culture, and frolic through wildflowers in Europe’s largest alpine meadow.
