After a less than pleasant night, John had a late breakfast and we checked out. Apart from the food episode it was a great place to stay and we would recommend the Grand Imperiale Hotel as a good place to base yourself to see Lake Como (but don't eat at Cafe Bellini - a couple of doors down!) Anyway about 11am we were picked up by our next driver who took us in a Mercedes minibus to Milan Railway station. Boy was the station busy! We arrived with a good hour to spare and John had ...

... cheap shoes, clothes etc and the Italian being spoken. We walked through the market without buying anything and headed off for a walk around the village. Luckily for us old folk, it was fairly flat not like Moltrasio. There was a mixture of old (narrow streets and buildings with shuttered windows and window boxes) and new.

We had a quick chat about where we would go and fortunately what the guide suggested was what we wanted to do. So we were driven to the old town of Como first - about 15 minutes away by car. The old part of the city is walled on three sides as the people of Milan and Como were not keen on each other. Of course the unwalled side of the city is the lake. ...

... 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.
