I'm going to let you in on a little secret. If you take a small country road from Bergamo north into the mountains and continue to follow the narrow roads snaking their way continuously upward, you will eventually happen upon a tiny village called Fuipiano. It is here, at its very edge, that you will find the "Albergo Moderno."
This place is of particular note because it serves the best Tiramisu in all of Italy and thus, probably in the whole world. My gracious host, the ever smiling Stephano, took painstaking care that everything was "just so." His father, the absolute spitting image of "Captain Haddock," who had just gotten home from a hunting trip in Ireland, eagerly lit the fireplace to ensure my comfort and attempted small chit chat in his broken English.
The village was quietly serene and the scenery...well, let's just say I felt like I had stepped into a fairytale.
