We decided to head to Lake Como for a long weekend. It was great as we left early in the morning and so in under three hours we found ourselves through the Gotthard and checking in to the Hilton Lake Como. We had lunch on their terrace overlooking the lake – a beautiful view! And then decided to go down to the shore to walk along the promenande. We also popped down all the little streets to see the sites (a very impressive Church) and do a spot of shopping! And then as is compulsory when in Italy – we had our daily afternoon gelato treat!
