The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfortable, spacious and clean. The view from the room was excellent, overlooking the lake. Specify a third or fourth floor to get a good view of the lake (large trees in front of the hotel). Wifi worked well and parking was ok (may be seasonal though). Hotel is well located with easy access to restaurants and cafes and ferry services to Stressa and the 2 smaller islands. Breakfast was typical European style with good choices. Highly recommended as a place to stay.

... s, crazy parking (we never parked on a corner or double parked so we are clearly not locals!) snowy mountain roads and everything in between. I must admit, I was relieved to sign it back in. We have checked in at an Airport hotel tonight to save us having to drive through the "traffico intenso" tomorrow morning. It is almost goodbye Italy, for now ...
... our train didn't leave for Lucerne until mid-afternoon so we ditched our bags at the train station and wandered about for several hours until it was time to leave.This day was rather sunny and warm.
Overall, we quite liked Como. It wasn't crowded with tourists and we saw some interesting sights and had a semi-relaxing time poking around.
March 27th we left for Lucerne
... lake, we went up the mountain in a funicular to a small mountain village called Pigra (means Lazy) from where we walked mostly downhill to the lake again – officially you climb 90m and you descend about 660m.
Actually I was expecting, and prepared, to walk up onto the ridge above Pigra but we didn’t … (Perhaps another day.)
The sky ...
Another cold night followed by sunshine.After breakfast we walked for a few kilometres along the shores of the lake. By 9.30 we were on the road, we stopped at one of the lakeside villages. Lazise is one of the old walled places, we entered through an arch in the walls on to cobbled streets that led to a large square which in turn opened out into a small harbour and a promenade along the waters front. ...
... statues and niches, and to crown it all, classical music playing over speakers hidden in the trees!
We also saw Victorian-style greenhouses full of vines and other exotics, then wandered gradually up the hill to the small chapel. This was a cool oasis in the heat, and lovely place with stunning stained glass windows decorated with (of course) flowers.
