Lake Como in November

On our recent trip to Italy, we wanted to celebrate Debbie's 65th birthday at Lake Como on November 9th. We were hoping to find a nice place for lunch on a day train trip (one hour on Trenord) from Milan. As I researched Lake Como on Tripadvisor and Rick Steves, I kept reading that there may not be many restaurants open after November 1st, especially on a Monday. I contacted a few that were open in November, but they didn't open on Monday.  Since the weather forecast was so fantastic, we decided to go and took the train to Varenna. We got there right on time at about 10 AM. We found a wonderful little place, Varenna Caffe, right on the water. (please see my photo below). We sat outside with our caffe Americano and a muffin and totally enjoyed the view.  From the Caffe Varenna, we took the ferry to Bellagio and back...More on this great day trip on my next post.
