The lakes have a spectacular emerald green shimmering colour to them. I’ll imagine they are rather deep and wonder what they might be hiding. It’s fascinating and breathtaking driving around on the sometimes small, windy and steep roads that dwindle in between the smaller mountain peaks. Not even sure all of them can be called roads!
There are many cities around the lakes to name and highlight such as Como, Bellagio, Menaggio Lecco and Brienno to name a few historical and spectacular ones. So much history and wilderness blending in with the modern life.
I truly recommend.
