Goodbye Venice – Hello Tarasp?

Our last morning we dined by the canal in our hotel garden. We stayed at the Aman Venice which had a beautiful garden on the grand canal where we ate breakfast each morning.

They humored me with a custom fruit salad of only watermelon. Yum!

We left the city by water taxis and started our drive to Tarasp in the Engadine region of Switzerland. On our way we stopped for lunch at a castle in northern Italy.

The menu has three items on it. I chose the lasagna and Brent had the sausage and polenta cakes. The castle and corresponding restaurant are run by a family who lives at the castle.

Brent’s looking pretty happy after lunch! While the climb up and down was a little steep Brent’s no traction dress shoes the risk was worth it!

We hit the road again and continued on to Tarasp.

Tarasp is a picturesque Swiss town home to about 350 people. We stayed at the Schloss Hotel which is a property that’s been owned by the same family for over 500 years. They transitioned the property from a farm to a hotel over a long period of time finally selling off the last of their cows in the 1950’s. The property is famous for excellent service and spectacular food. We met many members of the family during our short stay.

Above is our second helping of diner- yum!
