LAKE COMO

Lake Como is one of the most magical places I have ever traveled to. It's peaceful, romantic, and timeless. Como living means exploring medieval remnants in stone villages like Bellagio and Varenna, and touring luxurious villas with rolling vineyards and olive trees. The best way to do it all? By boat, of course. 

OVERVIEW

WHEN TO GO: August/September

WHERE TO STAY: Hotel Grand Tremezzo, Borgo de Terrazze

THINGS TO DO

  • Visit Bellagio - a picturesque stone village with silk shops and outdoor cafes
  • Go to the spa at Grand Tremezzo, have lunch, and lay by the floating pool
  • Take a boat tour from to see the entire lake and gain some local knowledge from the boat caption
  • Take a tour of Como's historic mansions like Villa del Balbianello and Villa Carlotta

The lake is very large, but you can easily catch ferries or water taxies to explore towns around the lake. Each town has it's own personality and charm. Some of my favorite towns include Bellagio, Tremezzo, and Varenna.

SHOP ITALY

Bellagio

Walk around the charming town of Bellagio and discover some of the best dining tucked away in the stairwells. Definitely check out the Italian silk shops and stock up on scarfs! 

Villa Melzi

Villa Serbelloni Garden

Ristorante La Punta

Borgo Le Terrezze

Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni

Hotel Belvedere

Tremezzo

The dreamy lakeside town of Tremezzo is just a 10 minute ferry ride from Bellagio. It also has two of the most breathtaking villas which you can tour, and one of the lake's grandest hotels. 

Hotel Grand Tremezzo

Villa Carlotta

 

Varenna

A low-key little town with scenic, lakefront dining.

Lakeside promenade in Old Borgo

Villa Monastero

Castello di Vezio

Villa Cipressi

 

CAMOGLI

The brightly painted fishing village on the west side of the peninsula of Portofino, between Genoa and Cinque Terre. It's not a very well known American tourist destination (which I very much appreciated), and it is filled with local tourists from Italy. Camogli is just 2 hours from by car from Milan. 

OVERVIEW

WHEN TO GO: August/September

WHERE TO STAY: Hotel Cenobio de Dogi

THINGS TO DO

  • Get some sun on the umbrella studded beaches
  • Walk around the small town of Camogli overlooking the water
  • Visit Basilica Di Santa Maria
  • Take a boat tour to Portofino with Portofino Water Taxi - ask for Andrea!
  • Enjoy Camogli's favorite dish - Trofie Pesto Pasta

Korakia, Palm Springs

A quick getaway with bebe and Foray Collective. 

A couple weeks ago, I was able to escape for a dreamy Palm Springs getaway hosted by Foray Collective and bebe. @blankitinerary @pamhetlinger @walkinwonderland @sophieelkus were there too which was great. PS has always been a favored impromptu destination of mine, and I love getting to know new girls from the industry—especially when they are extremely cool and smart.

We stayed at the Korakia Pensione which felt like a Moroccan paradise and had cute, intimate bungalow cottages. The whole space was unique and gorgeous—even the hotel’s fountain had rose petals floating in it. Everything was sooo peaceful and quiet. Since I manage Influencer Marketing at Foray, I actually coordinated the trip and luckily it turned out really well!

Day one I wore my favorite bebe outfit of the weekend, this off-the-shoulder black top. We relaxed at the pool all day and followed that up with in-room massages. Heaven! Happy hour was spent sipping champagne in the hotel’s courtyard where I finally got to meet (the super sweet) Pam and Sheryl. After HH, we headed to Workshop for a three-hour communal dinner with endless laughs...and drinks. Post dinner all the girls headed back to the pool for a night swim + more wine. So much fun!

Before leaving the next day, we attended the bebe brunch at the courtyard and had the BEST avocado toast (even better than what I’ve had in LA). It was farm-to-table food and you could really taste the freshness.

I could do this weekend over and over again. ‘Til next time, Palm Springs!
