From Milan, we went to Camogli, a lovely coastal town with nice hiking and ferry connections to places like Portofino.  We hiked, we rode boats.  Ratty and Mole had a swell time. Why Portofino has a rhino hanging around, I have no idea, but it’s a fetching piece of public art.

Italy is also rich in cheesy heroic statues, a favorite genre.  Monument Avenue, eat your heart out.
