... 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 ...

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 ...

Plan B.

... others can hold a couple of hundred and then there's the old classic type that you see in old photographs from the 20's and 30's of life on Lago de Como. For my last night in Como I stumbled upon a little tratoria Osteria de Beuc - no idea what it means but the food was amazing and of course I had to take pictures of everything.
