After a less than pleasant night, John had a late breakfast and we checked out. Apart from the food episode it was a great place to stay and we would recommend the Grand Imperiale Hotel as a good place to base yourself to see Lake Como (but don't eat at Cafe Bellini - a couple of doors down!) Anyway about 11am we were picked up by our next driver who took us in a Mercedes minibus to Milan Railway station. Boy was the station busy! We arrived with a good hour to spare and John had ...

We arrived in Bellagio after lots of scenic views along the way and good commentary from our guide. As it was lunchtime, we visited a restaurant and John had some lovely carbonara spaghetti and was able to eat it without making a mess. Next a walk around Bellagio. Bellagio was really pretty ...

... around Italy and France, Luck would have it that a guy was standing at the dock with 5 € umbrellas and around the corner was a small thrift store where I picked up a pretty cool light rain jacket for the same price.
