Paradise Valley is a suburb of a little less than 15,000 people in between Phoenix and Scottsdale. Its only commercial zoning is for 5 resorts. It has no stores, no gas stations, no banks, no parks, and no apartments. Across the street from this resort is a small collection of doctor's offices, most of whom are cosmetic surgeons. Those are the only offices of any kind in the town. Its home values are ranked as the 11th most expensive zip code in the country.
This week we are showing photos of the Italian village of Cernobbi on the shores of Lake Como on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
