Arriving at our hotel, the Grand Hotel Dino .. and it was grand .. in the small town of Baveno, the temperature outside had dropped dramatically. From a sweltering +35C to 20C
After a long day, having left Venice in the morning, this was our stop for two nights. What a super hotel!!!! … and overlooking Lake Maggiore, a vast expanse of water 68km long and 3-5km wide, nestled against mountains and stretching into Alpine Switzerland. Very very pretty indeed!!
But first .. the Grand Hotel Dino. I love wandering around new places and naturally took photographs as I wandered 😉 …. come and ‘wander’ with me
Our very comfy room ..
Sumptuous foyer ..
We were treated to a delicious dinner in the hotel. I had the tortellini and sole fillet plus dessert ..
Our tour group ..
Adding a few more photos taken at different times while we were there. It just completes the Grand Hotel Dino ‘package’ 😉
Day 9 follows : a boat trip to Isola Bella on Lake Maggiore and dinner on Isola Madre and a boat trip around part of Lake Como plus a short stroll through the streets of Como …next
