... 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 ...

... 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.

... as the morning but that's a different and complicated story. We stopped a couple of times on the way back to look at the olive trees and the island from another view. Next we wandered around some of the fishermen's houses, saw an old church or two and old style boats. We passed George 's back gate and saw the bridge over the road from his villa to his garden. Then we arrived back at our hotel at about 4pm. Our kind guide spent some time with us giving directions for a day ...

... 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. There are ferry boats all day that traverse the lake. Some ...
