    ... girls and we all head down again. After walking about 50 metres down he looks up and can see the castle walls about 50 metres away. We are so close and all,that extra uphill was not needed. We continue down looking for the turnoff to the castle. We reach the main road without finding any road that goes that way. Seems odd. Then we read the sign again to discover to our horror that the sign says the castle is not open to the public ( in Italian ). So ...

We trudge along ...

    ... in the garden, with the occasional visit to our steps down into the lake for a dip. Very hard to beat this. Dinner was had at the Tres Rose restaurant up at the road level.

    ... help our plight, and was most apologetic. But he pointed out that on the main road on the valley floor were several big, commercial garages who would be equipped to help.
