The next town I visited on Lake Como was Tremezzo. It was a fairly quiet town with just a few shops and restaurants. It is home to Villa Carlotta which I didn't get to visit. I did walk down to a lovely park along the lake.

I painted part of this wall, but from the other side.

There was a beautiful fountain in the park.

I liked the wall with the foliage which was starting to turn red.

The church tower caught my eye.

While I was waiting for the ferry I sketched the salumeria across the way.

Tremezzo was pretty looking at it from the ferry.
