... Very interesting and took a few photos of the town and surrounding countryside. We then drove to another small hilltop town of Montechiello. We stopped and walked around this very clean town and had lunch at the restaurant Vittorio recommended called La Porta. Jen had pasta but I had beef cheeks in a red wine sauce with potato mash, lovely. Went home to ready ourselves for the next leg South towards Calabria and Alborobello, see you in about a ...
... After lunch the 5 of us went for a boat ride around Lake Garda which was beautiful. The captain even let each of the boys have a turn steering the boat which they thought was pretty cool. We were then going to go and have a look through a castle but it closed at 1pm! We didn't realize this and got there at 1.30pm. Oh well!

either way, being surrounded by tourists all trying to savour the
same atmosphere. We walked along a side street and immediately found
a much more attractive little restaurant, obviously a family run
affair with just the feel we were looking for. The food was
excellent – seafood pasta for me and rabbit tagliatelli for Jayne.
The evening stroll back to the hotel worked off our meal.
