Yesterday we took the ferry to Portovenere. It’s a small village on the western end of the peninsula that forms the La Spezia harbour. From Portovenere the boats head north up the western coast to the Cinque Terre.
A 3 hour bus ride south from Milan had me at the Ferrari Museum for the day.
Yesterday we bought a 24hr ferry pass and set out for the islands of Murano and Burano.

We first visited Lake Como on our honeymoon 10 years ago – came up on a day trip from Milan. It was a very wet and overcast day and we were unable to see the real beauty of the lake.
We spent 5 nights in Lucerne. During the stay, we did a day trip to Mount Pilatus.
