Argegno to Bergamo. Torrential rain set in after our 45th anniversary dinner with my family on our last night in Argegno. Fortunately it stopped briefly at 4.15am when we had to  clamber up the steep rough steps in the dark to the car high up ... Read more >

This was our worst day weatherwise. We took a ferry in the rain and mist to Bellagio, a touristy village at the tip of the peninsular protruding into Lake Como, which forms the lake into its characteristic upside down Y shape. The lake became quite choppy ... Read more >

A day at the Villa

Sunday, 20 Jul 2014 | Views [86]

Today we took the opportunity to relax at the villa, enjoy the fairytale position and views, and explore the village, having waved off Alan, Chris, Sue and Graham from the balcony as they caught the ferry for a day at Villa Carlotta.
