Well, I finally got a substantial amount of sleep, which fueled me for the day. After the traditional breakfast in the hotel, we departed for Como via coach bus. The first stop was the Mantero Seta Spa for a guided tour of their silk facility. Inside the archives, we saw previous patterns of fabrics from some of the most well know fashion brands such as Chanel, Dior, and Louis Vuitton. Unfortunately no pictures were allowed to be taken, so I cannot show how impressive this company was.
After the tour finished, we loaded onto the bus again to head to the heart of Como for lunch as a group. They served us our own individual pizzas for the meal, and it was made just the way I like it, with a lot of cheese. Then, we explored the town further with our free hour and guided tour. We had the opportunity to take lots of pictures with the gorgeous background of the lake.
We ended the day with a boat tour and got to see Gianni Versace’s house and George Clooney’s on the boat. The rain came while we were on the boat, but it did not hinder our experience too badly. I am excited to explore the new city of Florence tomorrow, Ciao for now!
