At the Swiss Train station counter, we mapped out our train itinerary to get us to Lugano. Sometimes we have to get off one train and within 3 minutes, locate and get onto another. Managing our 45 pounds of (light?) luggage on and off trains is a daunting task but we are getting the hang of it.

The weather was gray again. It's "off-season …

... and rather like an English seaside town, except that the shops sell foccacias and pizza. Our hotel is half a block from the beach but most of the stoney beach areas require you to pay to get in. You can hire a deck chair too, if you pay. We walked to the "old" town but didn't explore very much more. John picked up a paninni for dinner and sat on the balcony and ate it. What a rough life we lead! We have a tour guide and tour of Cinque Terre tomorrow. Let's hope the sea isn't too ...

... Villa B Where lots of movies have been filmed. It's like a National Trust building now. We took lot of photos and will add them to the blog when we can transfer them from camera to blog. 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 ...
