first thing this morning we walked to the Bellagio car ferry and a took a trip to Menaggio, (You'll recall that from yesterday so no need for pictures). Then a ten minute walk to the bus stop, and here are some highlights of our trip through the mountains from Menaggio to Lugarno, much of it along Lake Lugarno. Goodbye to Lake Como as we climbed higher.
The roads seem way too narrow for a bus and hairpins are again included. At times he pips the horn to let drivers coming the other way know we are there.
Our next trick is to find the railway station. This we do by asking, walking and taking the funicular.
train from Lugarno to Bellinzona. The mountains are growing and more snow is appearing.
Time to jump on a train from Bellinzona to Fluelen. Now the mountains are really growing and we pass through small and quaint villages, all with their own little church.
a ferry across the length of Lake Lucerne to Lucerne. It takes nearly 3 hours and is a wonderful way to end our journey. There are plenty of curious visitors before the boat departs.
And a form of transport we didn't take today - a cable car.
