Picturesque Bellagio and historic Verona

... it was so close made up for its shortcomings,

We drove home without mishap but it took us about 1 ½ hours to get through the motorway toll at Ventomiglia on Saturday afternoon. The Côte d'Azur is heaving with tourists and it is virtually impossible to go anywhere as you cannot park, have to queue for everything and are anyway unlikely to get in. The food is overpriced and the service is slow and don’t even think about going to the beach as you ...

... for 2 hours for lunch and not much else. We stopped for lunch at a cafe that had great views, good cheap food and cold beer and waited for the next ferry to take us to Villa Carlotta.

Princess Marianne of Nassau purchased the villa and gave it to her daughter, Carlotta, as a wedding present when she married Georg 11 of Saze-Meiningen. Unfortunately Carlotta died at the age of 23 and heartbroken Georg directed all of his energy and passion to botany and created ...

... payment. After dropping them off at Varenna the Ferry continued and we were soon pulling into Bellagio and it is a brilliant sight. Our Hotel is only 50 meters from the ferry terminal so we check in, but as our room isn't ready, we go for a walk along the promenade, have a sandwich and a cold beer for lunch and watch all the beautiful tourists walk by.

We check in and our room is just what I requested, third floor, northern ...

For whom the bell, and the drum tolls

... is close so this should be simple. Except, our bags have grown mysteriously heavier at each stop and it’s a bit of a challenge dragging them along the cobbled streets. No problem, it will be relaxing on the train. By process of elimination, we find the right platform, negotiate the steep steps on to the train and find our assigned seats. The bags are more or less piled with all the others at the back of the ...
