After a less than pleasant night, John had a late breakfast and we checked out. Apart from the food episode it was a great place to stay and we would recommend the Grand Imperiale Hotel as a good place to base yourself to see Lake Como (but don't eat at Cafe Bellini - a couple of doors down!) Anyway about 11am we were picked up by our next driver who took us in a Mercedes minibus to Milan Railway station. Boy was the station busy! We arrived with a good hour to spare and John had ...

As it was lunchtime, we visited a restaurant and John had some lovely carbonara spaghetti and was able to eat it without making a mess. Next a walk around Bellagio. Bellagio was really pretty ...
... around Italy and France, Luck would have it that a guy was standing at the dock with 5 € umbrellas and around the corner was a small thrift store where I picked up a pretty cool light rain jacket for the same price.
