|After leaving Switzerland around midday we crossed the Italian border soon after. The border checks did not seem all that stringent but the polizia inspected the purse of a lady and soon dragged her off the train. It's times like this you wish you could understand Italian.
The train had a long stop in Milan before we travelled to Verona. At first glance, Verona isn't eye-catching. We eventually found our bed and breakfast, which turned out to be very nice. It is also right on top of a gelateria - yum!!!
Last night ate at a local restaurant and we both have to declare it's the best Italian meal we've ever had. After a couple of carafs of the house red (which we might add was pretty good!) we waddled home to bed.
