... s, crazy parking (we never parked on a corner or double parked so we are clearly not locals!) snowy mountain roads and everything in between. I must admit, I was relieved to sign it back in. We have checked in at an Airport hotel tonight to save us having to drive through the "traffico intenso" tomorrow morning. It is almost goodbye Italy, for now ...
... our train didn't leave for Lucerne until mid-afternoon so we ditched our bags at the train station and wandered about for several hours until it was time to leave.This day was rather sunny and warm.
