Today we went to Villa Di Catullo, which is an ancient castle left in ruins after many years. Apparently you are not allowed to stand any of the rocks, we found out when the boys were posing on a rock for a photo and we suddenly heard a woman madly blowing her whistle from 100m away yelling at them to get down! We had a coffee and ice-cream (kids have had more ice cream in Italy than they have had all year!) and then a look through the shops on the ...
... The number of cars heading into the car park was insane! This time of year Gardland is only open on the weekends. We got a map and it took us a little while to sort out the best way to proceed. As it was a really busy some of the wait times for rides were over 30 minutes, but there were express passes you could buy so that you could jump the queue.

boat paused briefly as we boarded and took off on a two hour trip to
the top of the lake. The waves rolling down ...
... turned out
to be the son of the owner. As our meal concluded, he brought out
two glasses of Mirto. To his surprise, we told we knew what were
being offered and our appreciation of it. He promptly withdrew the
glasses and disappeared. A few minutes later, he returned with
another offering, this time home made by one of their chefs. It was
clearer, lighter in colour but wonderfully smooth and tasty. It
capped a lovely evening out.
