Moving Day - Off to Lake Como

After breakfast we headed back to Cadorna station to catch the train to Lake Como. I am just getting used to our new Garmin Nuvi 770 GPS unit, but I think it did help us get there.

Malpensa Express is operated by FerovieNord, a local commuter line that also goes to Lake Como and a couple of other places. It arrives right at the waterfront in Como rather than at the Trenitalia station.


We hopped on the ferry and arrived in Lenno about 40 minutes later. Albergo Lenno is right behind the ferry station, and it looks just the same as it did three years ago.

We didn't get our same room but the one next door, which has a larger deck. It is SO beautiful here, and the weather is just gorgeous!

After unpacking a little bit, we walked down the waterfront to check things out and make our dinner reservation.

Our favorite restaurant last time was Ristorante Plinio, so that is where we had our first-night dinner. Bill had a green salad and spaghetti with a wonderful ragu sauce. I had homemade tortelloni with spinach and sage and butter sauce. Then lake fish with sage and butter sauce.

Since I was behind on my gelato consumption (I vowed to have at least one a day), we stopped for dessert on the way home.

My goal was one gelato a day this summer. Came close but missing even one day is missing too many days :)

I have taken the boat and then the Malpensa Express train to the airport but have not done it the opposite way. Glad everything went smoothly for you.
