Cost 15euro including a glass of wine. Back on the boat ...

... woes apart, this was a thoroughly nice place to be. I indulged in the sense of History, as you do.
Next morning was time for the classic view of Locarno, which can be found from a funky monastery high above the town. We were grateful for the services of a funicular to get us up the mountainside, rising through a steep gorge. We had a fun chat with a honeymooning English couple from the North West, about our age, and who had clearly not been married for the first ...
