Chasing the Dream: A Majestic Golden Hour Adventure in the Heart of Lecco

Finally, the moment we’ve been eagerly anticipating has arrived! Our final exams are done and dusted and it’s time to hit the road and explore a new city with my trusty travel partner V. With Italy on a well-deserved break and the sun shining down, the stars have aligned for the ultimate adventure.

We were brimming with excitement as we boarded the train and set off towards the picturesque town of Lecco. Lecco is a city in the Lombardy region of northern Italy, located at the southern end of Lake Como. It is surrounded by stunning mountain scenery and is located at the foot of the Grigna mountain range, making it a popular destination for outdoor activities such as hiking and climbing.

As we gazed out the train window, the rolling hills and shimmering lake slowly came into view. It was as if we were being drawn into a world of breathtaking beauty.

Finally, we arrived in Lecco, and the beauty of the town took our breath away. Despite its small size, Lecco boasts stunning views of the lake, making it the perfect place for a relaxing getaway. We spent the day taking in the sights and soaking up the sun, feeling grateful for this once in a lifetime experience.

With a sense of awe and wonder, we embraced the simple joys of life and enjoyed the moment.

This lake was unbelievable. It’s much bigger than it looks in the photo.

We’ve arrived in a winter wonderland, where the sun is shining and the temperature is a chilly 7 degrees Celsius. Despite the nippy weather, we’re braving the elements and embracing the great outdoors. After all, it’s warmer than Milan, and we’re not ones to back down from a challenge!

As we step out into the crisp winter air, we’re met with a mesmerizing scene. The lake sparkles in the sunshine, surrounded by rolling hills and mountains. The scenery is simply breathtaking.

Families, couples, and tourists alike are braving the elements and taking in the sights, and we’re right there with them. It’s amazing to see so many people enjoying the great outdoors despite the cold. The energy and excitement are palpable, and we’re feeling more alive than ever.

With every step we take, we’re drawn deeper into this winter wonderland. The beauty and serenity of this place are simply unmatched. The chill in the air may be nippy, but the warmth in our hearts is all we need to survive.


We’re venturing further down the lake, away from the hustle and bustle of the city center, to a place where nature reigns supreme.

As we walk, we catch a glimpse of a walking path that seems to stretch on forever. It’s a breathtaking sight, and we can’t help but feel a thrill of excitement as we set our sights on this unexplored territory.

With each step we take, the surroundings become more and more peaceful. The only sounds we hear are the occasional chirping of birds. It’s as if we’re the only people in the world, and the tranquility of this place is absolutely exhilarating.

And then, just like that, we reach the end of the path, and the view takes our breath away. The lake stretches out before us, surrounded by peaks and rolling hills. It’s a scene straight out of a postcard, and we’re in awe of its beauty.

This is the moment we’ve been waiting for. The further down the lake we venture, the more breathtaking the scenery becomes.

Then the golden hour came around. Gotta love the reddish tones in the sky.

Our day was mostly spent by the lake. Although, we hit the town and went shopping, exploring the city center and soaking up the sights. But, the real highlight was our scenic stroll around the lake, where we took in the breathtaking views and truly felt like we were living life to the fullest. Who wouldn’t want to bask in such beauty?

So, until next time Lecco, ciao for now!
