We are holed up in a hotel near Bergamo, after crossing the Alps and driving through a thirteen kilometer tunnel. A shame we don’t have the time to visit some of the high passes at the moment but we hope to on the return trip. Traffic was bad around Milan, but we had a meal in a small village called Stezzano. Our first Italian night out, pizza on a village square. Tomorrow we head to Lake Garda, and will decide whether to stay overnight or carry on for a bit. Depends on the weather and how we find the area. Very friendly so far, and fantastic sights as we drove through the Alps. So a good start.
We are loaded with books to read and have the time to enjoy the driving so it is looking good for the holiday.
