... 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 ...

Today was a rest day. MAfter a late breakfast at 9:30 we organised ourselves and decided to go to the next village for a look around.

... of steps up to the main shopping Centre but we persevered and took the long climb up for the sake of being able to experience all that Bellagio had to offer. We walked to the point and saw where the three arms of the lake met. More good photos but also still wet. Then visited a church and did a little shopping - scarf and souvenirs and the first mug was purchased. Back to the ferry and across the lake again (10 minutes on a car ferry) where we met our car. It was not ...

... 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 ...
