We waited in line at the port, dock number 4 and bought cheap tickets for a one hour boat ride. We really enjoyed this and oohed and aahhhed at how lovely it all was.
The obligatory ice-cream stop after the boat ride before we headed back to the hotel, stopping on the way at a K.Mart kind of store to buy me some swimming goggles, with my bright idea of swimming some laps in the big hotel pool.
Hmmmm that didn't eventuate. ...
... walked toward the funicular (aka very steep train driven by massive cables up a very steep hill - see video) and on our way chose a pasta Restuarant to lunch at.....Yum.

We all had a very restful sleep after our previous day's adventure! Breakfast was served to us by Guiseppe the owner of the Hotel la Fontana. He's a lovely, friendly helpful man who takes care of us and even kisses the girls buon giorno in the morning haha.
The hotel is boutique style, very European and really nice.
Today the 11 of us have decided to go to Intra to the all day markets.
We buy return tickets for €12.40 each and board the boat on Lago Maggiore ...
