Villa Olmo is a must-see spot in Como, and it’s easy to see why.

The Pentagon announced on Monday afternoon that the last American troops had left Kabul airport almost 24 hours ahead of schedule, ending the U.S. war in Afghanistan after 20 years and the deaths of almost 2500 troops.
President Biden managed to meet his August 31 deadline and remove American personnel from danger, but it came at the cost of letting the Taliban retake the country and the deaths of 13 US service members last week.
Americans and Afghan allies who were left behind must also fend for themselves now that the airport no longer offers an escape route.
The president has also been dealing with the federal response to Hurricane Ida, which has left more than one million people without power throughout Louisiana and Mississippi.
Ida dumped torrential rain on the area, flooding much of New Orleans before being downgraded to a tropical storm Monday
One person, a 60-year-old man who has not been named, was confirmed dead after a tree fell on his home in Prairieville, Louisiana, on Sunday.
But both President Biden and Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards said they expect the death toll to increase throughout the day as search and rescue operations continue.
