... to pick up Karin's mother who is coming to stay so I booked lunch for us at the Hermitage in the Col d'Eze which was a good choice as it was a beautiful setting and great food. A bit off the beaten track so a lot less crowded than anything on the coast and with easy parking. Karin and Mark took all the photos so I guess they will be for the next blog. Back to work on Monday but it's a short week again as Friday is a holiday, 15th August. Thank goodness for all these bank ...
... and the many large villas along the shores. Back to our room for a cold beer and an afternoon nanna nap for Richard to recharge his batteries. Julie took a hike up and down to the small fishing village of Pescallo, We both decide that we would have a quiet night and had a pizza in our room for dinner.

Well we made it - 40 years of wedded bliss.
Today we decide to purchase a day pass for the Ferry and explore ...
... Ok, the bell chimes twenty four times each day, some of these seemingly random, but we discover the church was built in the thirteen hundreds, nearly as old as the unassuming little grey church nearby that just happens to be two centuries older than its larger neighbour. That sort of sums up Varenna. Other places on Lake Como shout out "hey – George Clooney lives here" or “This spot was used in a James Bond movie” but Varenna just sits quietly and ...
We say farewell to Milan with a taxi to the Central Railway Station which is huge, try to purchase tickets from carne machine but it won't accept my credit card, luckily a nice gypsy woman just happened to be looking over my shoulder and offered to help and we get our tickets. Grazie mille, but she doesn't want my thanks as she has just come out of hospital and needs some money. She still had the bandage on her arm! Feeling sorry for her ...
... line, but even so, Milano station is an experience. We join the throng of touristas trying to decipher the flashing boards announcing trains and platforms. Our first problem is that you need to know the final destination of your train, and we don’t. Look, there’s an official looking young man over there. He has a white shirt and a tie. He has a name tag - Cheisa di Gesu Christo Dei Santi Degli Ultimi ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Bazzoni et du Lac Tremezzo
We stayed at the Hotel Bazzoni on a Half Board basis for 1 week. From the outside it doesn't look like one of the prettiest hotels in the world, but you get what you pay for.
The food was served buffet style for both breakfast and dinner. The dining room overlooks the lake, so you have the chance to take in everything from snow-capped mountains, traditional villas and the lush green woods which surround the lake. As for the food, there wasn't much variation for breakfast (sausage, scrambled egg, bacon, breads, meat, cheese etc), but dinner and dessert was a real treat, they do an especially nice tiramisu. The staff were friendly, but a little too eager to whip the plate out from under you.
We had a room which over looked the lake, which was quite frankly a mistake. Why? Italian drivers seem to go at 100km at night time making it hard to sleep. We also had problems with the internal phone, which our next door neighbours kept ringing, it was easy to figure out who it was as well because the walls don't do much inhibit sound.
I would say that all in all that it's an ok hotel. We were just unlucky with our neighbours, and if anything it has taught me find out exactly where the nearest road is!
