While exploring lodging options at Lake Como today for my clients, a lovely honeymoon couple, I discovered Villa Castiglioni on the shores of Lake Como, and just next door to George Clooney’s Villa Oleandra. This is truly a dream destination and not just due to the charming movie star neighbor. Enjoy this bit of travel eye candy for #TravelTuesday.
