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!)

He pointed out important places like Versace's villa, George's villa, Ric************'s villa and lots of others. It rained most of the time but wasn't cold. The low lying cloud was quite picturesque though. We ...

... Each corner and alcove was unique with tombs of cardinals past, tapestries, marble alters, statues, gold inlayed reliefs, stained glass windows and tributes to saints that I never heard of. Being the lapsed Catholic that I claim to be it's humbling to see these works of art and the depth of century's old devotion and faith. And as the rain let up I headed out to the other areas of worship, the higher ...
