We landed in Zurich at 10:00 am Swiss time....that translates to 4:00 am in the US. I was so surprised to see all of the colorful leaves on the hillside. Guess I never thought about fall in Europe.
Our second flight took us to Milan,Italy where we boarded a bus for the hour journey to Lake Como. We saw a large campground on the way with tents and small campers all parked close together. It seemed a little out of place until we went a little further and saw a dirt bike race track with moguls and hills manicured for the dozens of bikers. We had passed it before I could pull the camera out. Lesson learned. KEEP the camera handy.
Our hotel is right on the lake. We can look across and see the village of Bellagio. There is a ferry to cross the lake. That is on our to do list.
Time to get a hot bath and a little shut eye. We dine at 7. :).

Today we are back on the ferry to Como, walk along the foreshore to check out some large villas on the west side - now all owned by the Como Provincial Government, then onto the 'fast boat' and up to Menaggio which is midway north up the lake. The lake is 46km from one end to the other, so I guess we travel 20 ...
We arrived in this beautiful city at dusk so we weren't able to get the most out of it. Stayed there only for one hour and we spent that time in Parco Civico capturing the flickering lights of the city surrounded by mountains. The view from the shores of Lake Lugano was fascinating. It's truly a must-visit city and I'd love to go back and see it in broad daylight. ...
Leaving Milano, we started the day with Bergamo which is an ancient town about 40 km east of Milan we've been hearing a lot about. I have to admit that it wasn't as great as I thought it would be. Maybe it's just me setting my expectation too high.
The old town (citta alta) is up on the hill and we had to take ...
... right on the lake, it had gorgeous views of the Alps as well. We walked along the water and grabbed some lunch. It was very nice. We returned to Bergamo, walked around a little longer and went back to the hostel to sleep.
In the morning, we got up early and had some breakfast before we headed off to the airport to go to Greece!

... which is a small town on our side of the peninsula/lake. We finally found the start of the trail we were hunting for (directions of course were, "Find the church...then face the bus stop... now look left..." Typical Italians.
It was drizzling lightly, but we were in a very covered forest for the first half of the hike, going literally straight up hill! At some points I was using my hands to climb up. We didn't see any other people for ...
