We planned to see lake Como , Bellagio and Milan this time. We started from Horgen Zurich in the morning around 9.00AM by car, on the way we picked some croissants, strudel and. coffee for breakfast and carried on, in Switzerland every drive is so scenic and picturesque, that one can see for hours..
After 3 hrs we passed thru Chiasso, the border town, looked worth seeing but we didn’t have time, bhi Eder checking is not much, just a person looking into the car, no checking of passports or COVID certificate.
We entered Lake Como, it’s surrounded by mountains on all sides and lakes. We had booked rooms in Hilton thru booking.com. It is a very spacious hotel and big lobby area..Due to covid mask is necessary to wear even in hotel.checkin time is 3 PM, since we reached around 1, and we were hungry also, we decided to have lunch here only. It had very limited menu, no pizza even, bruschetta was also not good , very bland , and I had sphagett,.. ok only and charges are quite high, here they charge for water also.
Room wasnt ready by 3 also, so with a little haggling , she upgraded our room. Here some rooms have glass ceiling and give the feeling of sleeping under the sky. Rooms are good with kettle, iron and all.They have rooftop swimming pool.
Then we went to the city, and walked around.. whole area was full of designer shops. And they close at 7 pm and then all restaurants open, most of them expand outside with fireplace and all. And then there were hawkers selling toys, umbrellas and all. Surprisingly most of them were Bangladeshi and I felt bad looking at their condition, hardly able to sell much.
We had dinner of pizza pasta and burata and came back to hotel.
