We also loved the scenery along the way today. Our first boat was a Vaporetto ride from the Rialto Bridge to St Lucia railway station, and you already know that's scenic. The first train journey took us to Milan (or Milano as the locals call it.) we both had window seats and Garrie laughed when I tried to clean the windows inside and outside before we left. (Italian train interiors are clean, the windows are not!) here's our high speed train, and don't you love the recycling bins for passengers as they leave!
The landscape started with flat farming lands
and then the hills started to develop.
Oh and I loved this sign. (Obviously created for the male of the species and translation not really required)
Our second train takes us from Milan to Varenna on Lake Como. It ducks through tunnels on several occasions and suddenly we are next to water.
Look at the bottom of these cliffs and you'll see where the roads and railway go into the cliffs.
