Welcome to DiscoveringLario.com, the site that will take you to discover the most evocative places that beautiful Lake Como can offer.
Betweenits waters, its paths, the countless beautiful countries and the beauty that Hermann Hesse was able to decant as follows:
Even the village, tiny and slightly steep, gave to the lake the harmonious enchantment of one of its sceneries: wide stone steps to serve as a docking place and for washing, at the foot of which some boats were moored, a house covered with vegetation, a quiet small square in clear stone with beneath the façade and the bell tower of a fine church and the pleasant half-round wall of the harbour overlooked by young trees.
It was a painting of such harmonious perfection that at last I did not dare to disturb its grace. I stood in my seat and let that little jewel pass me by and move away becoming smaller and smaller, I nodded gratefully, discreetly saying goodbye.
