To us Lugano was just the mid-way point between Padua and Freiberg, well, Kuppenheim as it happened. It is also notable as being the place where we hit 8000kms driven since we left Paris....momentous!


Lugano is a beautiful, though expensive spot








and the countryside leading in and out of it …

Monterosso on Cinque Terre via Milan and Genova

Up early, had breakfast and met our tour guide at about 9am. It was raining so we took a brolley each and opted for raincoats. We had a quick chat about where we would go and fortunately what the guide suggested was what we wanted to do. So we were driven to the old town of Como first - about 15 minutes away by car. The old part of the city is walled on three sides as the people of Milan and Como were not keen on each other. Of course the unwalled side of the city is the lake. ...
