... at station with a nice glass of Pinot Grigio. Quick 40 min trip to Como- out of the flatlands into the mountains. Light rain and a bit cooler. Como is a disappointment- not much to see, but several nice piazza between crowded buildings. The only hotel in town that looked interesting was closed for winter so Tourist office suggested a place in Cernobbio ( sounds like Chenoble) about 6 km away. Terzo Crotto. Lovely 100 year old hotel with big courtyard in quaint little village ...

Now comes the fun part........Using a long wooden paddle, the curds that have settled and congealed on the bottom of the kettle are pulled up to the surface and placed in cheesecloth.

Dolce was a zuppe inglese (Italian custard) and a blackberry tart. It was all ...
... We were allowed to park outside the front door, felt like the Queen only couldn't get out of car very well as crammed too much with our luggage!!!! Saw La Ferrari before going to Restaurant Montana which had been recommended to us. Drivers and Ferrari fans go there. We were told we did not need to book but it was obvious it was popular once we arrived. Told us no table but we pleaded and they relented. You know when a place is popular when there is no menu, they just tell you ...
... The town is so pretty with beautiful buildings and so clean. Made it back to hotel for 12 noon departure to Maranello. Drove through Gotthard Pass which took us above the clouds. Stu always wanted to drive this. Lots of hairpin bends. Scary for passenger! Very beautiful until fog descended. 272 miles later at 5.15pm we arrive at Locanda del Mulino, our hotel. Pleasantly surprised as looks well ...
