Cernobbi is a village on the west shore of Lake Como about a 10 minute ferry ride north of Como, which is at the southern end of the Lake. It is the site of the famous, elegant Villa d' Este hotel, which we have shown in the past. The photo above is the logo for the hotel composed of flowers at the entrance to the hotel.
Today we are showing a few scenes from the short walk through Cernobbi from the ferry landing to the Villa d' Este hotel, where we enjoyed an elegant lunch. Like many small Italian towns, there are charming details in the architecture of the churches and other buildings.
This house has wonderful details, including the ivy covered balcony, lattice trim under the eaves, painted accents, etc.
We always stop in churches when walking around towns in Europe. The are full of beauty and moments for reflection. This is my husband, Dave, emerging from a church in Cernobbi.
Above the doorway to the church were these angelic terra cotta figures.
Here is the church and bell tower together. My guess is that they were built at two different times, as they are different in appearance, with the bell tower lacking the terra cotta features of the church.
