After you’ve taken in the city’s renaissance art treasures, people-watch in Milan’s high-fashion shopping zone to see Italy’s 21st century prosperity on parade. An hour away by train is Lake Como, Rick’s favorite of Italy’s northern lakes, with the best mix of accessibility, scenery, offbeat-ness — and a heady whiff of aristocratic romance.
