The Lee Family in Europe: Part 2

Saturday, June 14, 2014

One of our favorite parts of the trip was stop number two: Lake Como. We absolutely fell in love with this place. There is something undeniably charming about a grand, lazy lake, winding around rolling green hills dotted with tiny villages painted in pastel, with the occasional elegant villa tucked around the bend.

Oh, and to make matters better, George Lucas also filmed scenes from Star Wars here. 

Ever since I saw the scene in Episode II: Attack of the Clones where Anakin and Padme get married, I thought a place that beautiful couldn’t really exist in real life, that it must be graphics or camera trickery to make a place look so out of this world. But after spending the afternoon touring the villa, I was blown away by the true beauty of it all and could easily understand why this particular location was chosen for the famed Star Wars scene.

Lake Como is the ideal trip if you’re looking for some relaxation. We greatly enjoyed sleeping in a bit, ate breakfast on our apartment balcony overlooking the lake, took afternoon strolls through the town, enjoyed drinks in the many cafes that line the lake, relaxed by the water while watching boats sail by, and finished off each evening with a late dinner overlooking the lake that was glistening with reflections from the town lights.

May the force be with you,
