... road seemed to be a pedestrian street as it was cobbled, narrow and full of people and we were sure we shouldn’t be driving down it but surprisingly this is the main road into town. The hotel Florence was a delight, right on the banks of picturesque Lake Como. I had a beautiful room with a window opening to the view.

Soon we are heading out of Milan and make our way up into the mountains for the 55 minute ride to Varenna where we will catch a ferry to Bellagio. The views are spectacular and all is going fantastico as we pull into Varenna until two stupid Poms don't know how to open the ...
