    Our Italian Tour 2015 can be found here

    Today we drove from Lake Orta to Lecco ready for a visit to Lake Como tomorrow. As it is a 'fasting' day we will not do much more today (did the shopping on the way)

    Ciao for now :D

    We had pizza tonight - nearest we will get this year.
    However, hope you have a great trip and hope you make loads of notes on your sites/Aires as we are thinking of visiting the Italian lakes next year.

    Italy is lovely, but just don't go down any narrow lanes in a camper! :eek:

    We love Como, we stay in Domaso usually. There's this little pizzeria there, has a green frontage, and looks a bit tatty - serves the best seafood platter I've ever had! (y)
    Can't remember the name, but there is a campsite opposite called Camping Le Vele.

    Superb photo's (y) What stunning scenery.

    The weather looks fantastic too, lucky you :cool:

    BTW how safe do you feel stopping at the Aree di Sosta as my wife is very worried after our experience at a Belgium service station?

    Cheers & enjoy, Antony
