Var ni kommer att vara

The tour starts in front of what once was the Gran Albergo in Cadenabbia, where Mary Shelley in 1840 spent almost two months of vacation. From there we’ll walk to Villa Carlotta ( once Sommariva) in Tremezzo. On our way, step by step, we’ll listen to pieces of her travel journal, discovering what has changed and what is still immutable in the solemn and poetry inspiring beauty of Lake Como

I’m fond of Mary Shelley and I’ve known about hers travels in Italy, nonetheless thankyou to this unique experience I had the chance to discover some of the most beautiful spots on Lake Como ( Bellagio, Cadenabbia, Tremezzo) as seen with the very same eyes of Frankenstein’s author, a rare example of a nineteenth century traveller. Paolo is a very much agreeable person, very knowledgeable about the places we visited and the topics related to local history and the writer’s personal one. I lived kind of a multimedial experience, successful in bringing back the everyday life and the very far from obvious and austounding sketches of a such great testimonial of a past time holydaymaking on Lake Como.Truly a quality tour I would recommend to anyone interested in history, literature and scenic views of the landscape
