Off to the Italian Lakes

Well, what a treat, a week at the Italian Lakes, I can hardly wait. We are planning to visit Verona, go on a boat trip across Lake Maggiore to Switzerland and Locarno. From there we plan to travel by rail through the mountainous Cento Valli (100 Valleys) countryside, to explore the border town of Domodossola, at the foot of the famous Simplon Pass.
hope to do some of this
While we are there we plan to visit Mantova said to be 'the world's most romantic city' surrounded on three sides by beautiful lakes, and with a skyline of turrets and towers, which sounds fab. It  has ancient cobbled streets and squares, and sounds a magical painting location and finally we will squeeze in Lake Orta and the medieval town of Orta San Giulio, with its narrow streets, wrought-iron balconies. Sounds idyllic!
I'll take my ipad but may not be able to update my blog till we get home.
