We always thought that we were at the top, but then we went higher! We went for a walk around the area. We went down to S. Segmente for an expresso and then up into the hills. We also went to Lugano Lido where Corrado works in Switzerland for a fun day of swimming. The ...

She served them each dish family style. It was fun to watch. When we were waiting for the taxi, I struck up a conversation with the kids ...
... and so many special places to the extent that we have on this GOEUGO tour. The rest of the afternoon to mid evening was spent driving 500km down to Rome. We finished watching "The Tourist" movie and also "Angels & Demons". The countryside was mainly rolling hills and some 'white stone' mountains. Settlement was kind of like a Tuscany style with occasional villages and vineyards the closer to Rome we got. Tonight we are staying at a 4 star Fleming Hotel north of ...
