Sit, relax, look at lake.

Repeat often.

Take the ferry to all of the villages around the lake--especially mid-lake. You may be happier staying at mid -lake.

Listen to Bob. Taking the ferry from small town to small town is a wonderful and relaxing experience.

On the ferry you watch the town you've just left recede then turn around to see a new town and vista approach. It's magical!

There's plenty of gardens to visit in the summer. Unfortunately I went to the Lakes in October so missed most of the flowers.

Do a search here for Bellagio, Mennagio, Varenna and Lake Como and you'll find lots of ideas.
