- Italy’s ‘greatest lake’ not just for A-list celebrities
By vid Farley - Thursday May 25, 2017
Stone-clad villages cling to the lush, towering hills that surround the lake, and Baroque villas are sprinkled around its shores.Restaurants, both of the haute and the salt-of-the-earth varieties, serve just-pulled-from-the-lake fish and Lombardy regional specialties such as saffron risotto.Renting a car is the most convenient transport, but a more fun and intrepid way to get intimate with Como is by indulging in the frequent and vast ferry system that shuttles locals and visitors across the lake to villas and villages.Base yourself at the 94-room Grand Hotel Tremezzo — Lake Como, a villa that could have been a sibling to the Grand Budapest Hotel, conveniently located about midway on the banks of the lake with stunning views of Bellagio, across the water.The hotel itself offers plenty of diversions such as on-site wine tastings and cooking lessons, as well as painting classes and excursions in its private “water limo.”Hop on the ferry for the 15-minute ride across the lake to Bellagio, a pristine village of narrow, cobbled streets, cafes and shops that sell fancy olive oil and limoncello.Get a scoop or two of gelato from Excelsior Splendide, a kiosk just off the ferry dock, and be sure to order pinoli, or pine nut, if they have it, and then set about strolling the village.Tuck into a bowl of spaghetti, laced with a thick ragu of tomatoes, and locally caught pike, or try toc, a creamy fireplace-cooked polenta dish and Bellagio specialty.From there, get a water taxi to the only-accessible-by-boat Villa del Balbianello, an eye-pleasing 18th century property with a Hollywood pedigree, in that scenes from Star Wars:Take a tour of the villa, last home to eccentric explorer Count Guido Monzino who added several secret doors and passageways in fear that left-wing terrorists would abduct him and hold him for ransom.Continue the villa hopping tour — as one does in Lake Como — with a visit to Villa Carlotta in Tremezzina, a 17th century mansion that is home to an impressive art collection, including sculptures by Antonio Canova.The verdant botanical gardens surrounding the villa make for a peaceful way to end an afternoon of exploration.Back at the Grand Hotel Tremezzo, take a seat at the recently rebooted in-house wine bar and restaurant, L’Escale.Sip some vino (from the 350-bottle list) and indulge in spinach gnocchi with sea urchin, monkfish ossobuco, and softshell crab in a black sepia sauce.

- US Russians wary of Trump-Putin meeting in Germany
By STEVE PEOPLES, Associated Press - Friday Jul 7, 2017
BRIGHTON BEACH, N.Y. (AP) — The men sipping coffee in this Brighton Beach cafe have mixed emotions about the world leaders shaking hands on the television above the cash register."Shaking hands with President Putin is like holding a cobra in his hands," said Efes Cafe co-owner, Michael Rubinsteyn, as grainy images from Trump's Friday meeting with Putin flashed on the TV behind him.Storefronts along Brighton Beach Avenue feature signs in Russian, the first language for many residents of this working-class neighborhood.When asked, a handful of Russian immigrants opened up about a meeting they viewed as a positive step in relations between two world powers — even if they don't trust the Russian president.Smart people shake hands and sit at the table and talk, said Boris Milman, 60, who drank coffee as he waited to open his clothing store down the street.Trump is in "a more complicated situation than Putin," said Arcadian, 38, who suggested that Trump can't come across too friendly with Russia because of the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
- Rick Steves: Best sites for sizzling sunsets
By Rick Steves - Friday Nov 25, 2016
Paris has its share of blockbuster sights and beautiful viewpoints, but at sunset, my favorite spot is on the steps of the Sacre-Coeur Basilica atop Montmartre, the former haunt of struggling artists like Renoir, Picasso, and Edith Piaf.The setting sun makes the Alhambra glow red, evoking the tumult of this city’s violent history.On Mykonos, join the crowds in the cafes that line the colorful stretch of houses called Little Venice, and watch the sun set to the rhythm of the sloppy, slamming waves.Just as unforgettable is riding a ferry charging across the Greek sea, with dolphins — who seem to come out for the sunset — playfully loping ahead of the ship’s bow.The fragrance of wild grass stirred up by grazing sheep comes with a whiff of mystical druids, who once used these stones for their worship, dancing in the long shadows.Sitting on the rampart, with olive groves at your feet leading to a vast and lush Umbrian vista, imagine the age when each town was its own little state, and enjoy sundown with the same views and birdsong that inspired St. Francis.Listening to the steady call of gulls and the lazy gulping of small boats against little waves, take in this uniquely Norwegian view.The water is glassy and frightfully deep, the black rock cliffs rocket into the sky above, and the sun dips too early behind the peaks.For $50, you can hire a private boat with a captain and mate for an hour’s sail.The sinking sun turns palms into silhouettes, the temperature drops, and villages awaken — children frolic, long-legged birds strike a pose, and throughout the valley minarets come to life with their calls to prayer as you glide like a silent voyeur through the reeds.Rick Steves writes European travel guidebooks and hosts travel shows on public television and public radio.
