After nice stay in Bellagio- good evening meal -Peter had lake fish and I had excellent seafood spaghetti.
Had easy drive down to car ferry and caught the 9.20 ferry to Varenna for a scenic drive across country to the Dolomites. Very good weather and looking very for driving.
Features of our scenic journey which was great: extremely windy road and the suggested 90kph in some parts was scary especially when you met an oncoming vehicle traveling fast
After climbing we then followed straight along a fertile valley then started to climb again on more windy roads. This was ski territory and we passed through a number of ski resort towns which looked ver Austrian and German. Saw snow on the mountain tops and the lifts and ski runs currently green grass and not operational. Eventually we seemed to be at the top with no trees. Stopped formorningtea of coffee and then shared a pizza at Avery Austrian restaurant. We eventually made it to Hotel Tyrol.
We thought we were in Germany!! – German speaking , not Italian. Typical German Austrian buildings- another lovely room with pretty outlook to the mountains.
