There just happened to be a chocolate factory near Lugano, so with a short train trip we got there and went straight to the tasting area! Never mind the museum…who cares how they used to make it!
After the chocolate factory it was on to the funicular railway to the top of Monte Bre for the best view of Lugano. The restaurant at the top even advertised it.
And this is what we saw!
So it was back down again after the hottest coffee we have had since away. Now you may think the driver is driving this thing…in fact she was filing her fingernails! EEEK!
And today it was through the Swiss alps on the Bernina Express. A magical journey.
We ended up at St Moritz in this hotel and tomorrow it is back to the bahnhof to catch the Glacier Express to Zermatt and the mighty Matterhorn. A very cold walk outside tonight to look for some cheap food! Nothing is cheap here, not even the bus fares!
A nice big Swiss breakfast tomorrow …that means bread rolls, hams, cheeses, pickles, croissants, yoghurts, cereals, hot chocolate etc etc, before heading off through the snow again.
