... 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 ...

... Villa B Where lots of movies have been filmed. It's like a National Trust building now. We took lot of photos and will add them to the blog when we can transfer them from camera to blog. We arrived in Bellagio after lots of scenic views along the way and good commentary from our guide. 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. Churches are a good place to hang out when it's pouring out and Como has a very famous and beautiful cathedral. It's another gothic example started in the 1300's that took several centuries ...
