Leslie went for a run early this morning when the temperature was already reaching the low 30's C. She immediately commented about the fabulous villas she ran by and was sure she saw George Clooney waiving at her!! RIGHT! We later walked her running route and a bit further and she was right. This place is the land of rich and famous. So why are we here? We were told that this part of the Como region is the most expensive and most popular. I can certainly see why!
You can take private tours or public ferries around the lake from prices starting at $10 Euro p.p to $24 Euro for an all day pass. I think we are going to opt for the all day pass tomorrow and try to hit most of the key spots on Como. Maybe even stop for lunch at George's.
In the afternoon, we strolled to Cadenabbia, a few hundred meters below us on the lake. We walked the granite tile boardwalk that extended for a few kilometers along the lake. People dining, swimming in private pool areas along the lake that you pay to use. Tour boats line the shores and you can venture to whatever destination you would like to visit along the lake. It was another blue blazer today with temperatures reaching the high 30's. Tomorrow we are planning to book an all day ticket on one of the tour boats and hit as many locations as possible. We are really enjoying the B&B and are thinking of extending our stay another day.
I want to stand corrected on the comments I made a couple of blogs ago about ITALIAN DRIVER'S. I stand corrected. The driving we have seen so far in this part of Italy has been very courteous and nothing like our last experience in the south of Italy.
