... car drivers to drive. Luckily he drove well as once we left the autostrada, it was very, very windy to get to our hotel. 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 ...

Today was a rest day. MAfter a late breakfast at 9:30 we organised ourselves and decided to go to the next village for a look around. We took the ferry to Cernobbio via Torno so zigged across the lake then back again towards Como. As with anywhere on the lake, it was once again, very picturesque.

... district with designer stores, italian silk (Como is famous for silk) and tratorias. Found a little cheese shop tucked down an alley way that rocked my world. The goat's milk Gorgonzola was music in my mouth - I doubt if I will ever taste anything like it again. Ything! The 15 minute ferry ride back to Cernobbio was like stepping back again in time. There are ferry boats all day that traverse the lake. Some ...
