... it properly. Today it is kept in a hermetically sealed room to protect it further. Giacomo also pointed out all the symbolism in the painting, all figures cast in light apart from Judas. The grouping of elements in threes to represent the holy trinity, even Jesus depicted in a triangular shape, and Judas and Jesus reaching for the same bread. Leonardo worked on the piece for 4 years, but set up him Milan home and vineyards just across the road.

Also Wendy is probably almost cured of her fear of tunnels as we lost count of how many we went through in the almost 90 minutes it took to get to Monterosso. We checked in at Hotel Palme, checked out our fourth storey room with sea view and balcony and went for a quick orientation walk. Apparently we are staying in the "new" town which is very busy, lots ...

I learned two important things my first day in Europe: (1) the world is incredibly difficult to navigate without internet access & (2) Kelly & I might as well have a stamp on our forehead that says "American" Overall, I really enjoyed Milan. Getting lost multiple times ended up being a blessing in disguise. We were able to see a lot of the city in the one day we had. Onto the next tomorrow AM, Praha! ...

So up we went 1,600ft to the small village of Brunate (no blondes are allowed here) and was greeted with a big rain storm so we took shelter in a café with great views of the cloud (!) until it passed and once again we could see civilisation down below.

Historical Traveler Reviews Albergo Terminus Hotel Como
The setting at the lake front, room, and staff all excellent. Lack of a full restaurant and indoor lounge bar area a slight draw back. There is a small indoor dining area with an outdoor patio, with good food. But, there are lots of interesting restaurants right on the doorstep. A very good hotel.
I have to agree - great hotel
The location, just steps from the lakefront and the pedistrian walking/shopping district, make this a great find. Actually navigating to the hotel by car is not that easy due to the one-way street out front, but they have a convenient garage for parking. A nice breakfast buffet is served and the hotel staff was very helpful. There are 5 bicycles that are free to use. I highly recommend them for a bike around the pedistrian zone and up and down the lake front bike paths. Rooms were as-expected and the bathroom was very nice. If you want to splurge, there is a seaplane sightseeing company just around the corner on the lake front. Call ahead for reservations: 39 031 574495, www.aeroclubcomo.com. What a great way to see a beautiful lake.
Fabulous Stay in Como
The Albergo Terminus is a beautiful hotel located on Lake Como. The rooms are nicely appointed and the service was superb! While in Como, dine at Navadiano's. Fabulous Food!!!
Great location from which to explore Lake Como
We stayed one night here in May 2004 and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Albergo Terminus is ideally situated across the street from the ferry terminal and between the two train stations. For the price, the accommodations were great, certainly more reasonable than for a comparable room in Bellagio. The service was great, and staff very helpful.
Our splurge for our last night in Italy
I usually book a nice hotel for our last night on a trip so it will end on a high note. This was a great choice. Our suite had a huge balcony that overlooked the lake and the hotel's garden. The staff was very helpful, particularly when the bus to the airport just - never- came. They got us a taxi within minutes and apologized profusely for something that was not their fault. They knew the answer to all our questions including directions to a funny little internet cafe to check our email. A storm blew in while we were at the hotel and our room was a great place to watch it blow down the lake. We wandered upon the local soccer field and saw a match but that's another story.
Relax on Lake Como in this hotel.
We loved the Albergo Terminus Hotel in Como. It is perfectly located, the room we had was beautiful and comfortable and the staff was very helpful.
The restaurant, Bar Termi, is small and gorgeously painted in the arts and crafts style, the food is excellent and the staff attentive.
The ferry terminal is across the street and the boat rides on the Lake are an absolute pleasure. The main square is one block away, the Duomo about three blocks away.
The Albergo Terminus is very reasonably priced and we felt lucky to have enjoyed our stay there.
Definitely a Four Star
The Terminus has an excellent location (with a view of Lake Como and just across the street from the ferry) and a friendly, helpful staff.
Our room was clean and comfortable; the continental breakfast one of the better of our six hotel stay in Italy. We'd stay there again!
My husband and I and friends stayed at the Albergo Terminus in September 2003; all of us were completely satisfied with the rooms, the staff, and the great location (right on Lake Como and in the heart of the shopping and restaurant area). Parking was even quite convenient in the hotel's underground garage. The staff spoke English and were very friendly and helpful. The four of us heartily recommend the Albergo Terminus!
A wonderful surprise. This recently remodeled beauty is a real gem - I feel like keeping it a secret! The incredibly low price (compared to similar quality lodging) is unbelievable. From the location (right on the lake and close to shopping, restaurants, and turist sites) to the restoration of the old beauty combined with modern conveniences and attentive service - everything is perfect!
I highly recommend the tower in Albergo Terminus in Lake Como for a fantastic honeymmon destination. we went off season for a Valentine's Day honeymoon. The rate were very resonable and the atmosphere splendid! There was much to do even off season. The staff was very friendly and helpful for non italian speakers. The had laundry facilties and a great restaurant inside the hotel. It was within walking distance even with heavy luggage from the train station. the tower is a glorious 2 stories with a spiral staircase that leads up to the dome ceiling-ed, fresco bedroom. French door with endless views of the city. lake and mountians surround all sides and lead to a private roof top balcony. It was more romantic thanI could have ever hoped for. I HIGHLY recommend it for anyone in search of a ultra romantic getaway.
