SWITZERLAND & NORTHERN ITALY #8: ONWARD HO TO ITALY WE GO!

Getting in and out of Zermatt can only be accomplished by train or helicopter, so we took a short train ride out, and then met up with our bus driver for our transfer to Lecco, Italy, through Simplon Pass.  Along the way, we pulled off for a stunning view of the scenery that surrounded us.

For an al fresco lunch and some free time to explore, we stopped at Lake Orta.  The road was so narrow, our driver had to park the minibus, so we could transfer to a local van to continue, requiring two trips for our group of nine and Susy.  The town was so charming and photogenic—well worth tackling those logistics.

The following are scenes from this beautiful little town, beginning with the side of the short stone tunnel we walked through, which revealed the next scenes.
