Yesterday we went to Arona a nearby town in the morning and to Lake Orta in the afternoon. The outstanding thing there for me was the Sacre Monte where there are 21 chapels containing terracotta figures of the life o0f St Francis of Assisi, will post photos later. Today up Mount Mottarone in a cable car and over to Santa Caterina on a ferry.
Please excuse haste, more detailed account will follow when I return home, having lovely time though!!
