      Milano Day 3- Como!

      July 6, 2023 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

      At this point, I kind of felt like I saw everything that Milan had to offer, saw all the sights and all the big things. So, I decided to take a day trip out to Como and see what it’s all about. Now, I booked my train on the morning of, and left my hostel at 11:25. My train was at 11:43 and it was an 18 minute walk (not including the time it takes to navigate around the station and find the platform. So i RAN, to the station, and probably looked ridiculous. There was no time to spare, and I made it onto the train with 2 minutes to departure 😭. After a quick 40 minute train, I arrived. It was raining this morning, but luckily the storm subsided by the time that I got to Como. First stop was food. Naturally, I looked up “best cheap food Como” and landed upon a sandwich shop called Passion Como. My experience was amaaaazing! It was a family run build-your-own sandwich kinda thing and it was so good! I was greeted at the door by Danny, the 9 (?) year old son of the owner and I went for a prosciutto, spicy tomato sauce, artichoke, mozzarella panini. And it was amazing. Danny was also amazing, and we chatted lots about bugs, the dirty lake, and video games. A1 marketing for having him at the door. I even felt inclined to get myself an aperol spritz because I was so happy to be at this sandwich shop!
      It was a pretty chill day spent strolling, admiring the scenery. I took photos for other families, individuals, peoples and was heavily praised because apparently i am a great photo taker LOL😎. I got some gelato- strawberry and lemon, which was so refreshing, and just walked around the town of Como. Later on, I took the funicular up to the town of Brunate, which was a 7 minute ride. To be honest, up there wasn’t much, just like, rich people houses. But the view was amazing, you could see Lake Como and all of the neighbouring towns! There was this one church up there, which was creeeeepy. I don’t know what it was about it- the music playing when no one was there, the excessive artwork, idk. The art was extremely beautiful though and I could appreciate it, but it was so overwhelming, the amount, that it was kinda scary. After a bit more exploring in Brunate, I headed back down the funicular and made my way back to Milan. I stupidly forgot to charge my portable charger so by the time I made it back to my hostel I had 1% to spare 😝. I got some pizza again for dinner, and later drank wine and went to go dance with some new friends from Paris- Véra, Catherine, and Irene :))

      Doppio Malto, Como

      September 30, 2022 in Italy ⋅ ☁️ 12 °C

      Well today had to have been our least favourite of the trip so far. Woke up to heavy rain which hardly let up all day.

      We ventured out to a nearby cafe, one of the few open and undercover. The meal was a fizzer, just like the weather.

      Brad’s spaghetti had the immediate taste of being from a can and my hamburger was just awful. The beer and Prosecco were also foul and as can be seen by our pics, we couldn’t finish the meal. It was just bad.

      The weather forecast for tomorrow is a lot better so fingers crossed we have a great day for our last day in Como.

    • Day 16


      October 1, 2023 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

      We walked to the bus from the La Spezia hotel, setting off for Como via the outskirts of Milan. It was about a four hour trip and we arrived at our hotel at lunchtime. We dropped our bags and set off for a walk around the old city of
      Como, spending an hour enjoying lunch in the old city. We spent some time in a street market full of antiques, some of which seemed very old and potentially quite valuable. We had a look through the magnificent old cathedral that is located in the location of the old Roman city ruins, the street level of which is three metres lower than the current level. Como has been sinking for the last 2000 years because it was built on marshlands.
      We caught the funicular up to the town on the high hill above Como in order to enjoy the panoramic views, although it was a bit hazy which limited what we could see. The humidity accounted for the haze, which hung around for our entire stay in the region.
      We enjoyed dinner in town, celebrating Eliza Yorks birthday at the same time, and grabbing a gelato for dessert on our walk back to the hotel. Another great day, this time in northern Italy.
