If you’ve ever been on a European garden tour you know that for gardeners it’s the perfect way to travel – a great mix of cities, villages and glorious gardens, with garden-lovers as your travel companions (hardy souls that we are).
Or so I’ve been told, never having taken a garden tour myself, thanks to a non-gardening husband (or two). But here’s a tour that even non-gardening companions would enjoy – the Gardens and Villlas of the Italian Lakes. The dates of the tour are August 24 through September 2 (2013) and highlights include Venice, Murano Island, Doges Palace, Giardino Giusti, Como, Lugano, Switzerland, Bellagio, Stresa, Lake Maggiore, Villa Cicogna Mozzoni, Isola Madre, and Isola Bella. Most of those names are unfamiliar to me so I went looking for photos and found some. Now I really want to go.
