We visited the town of Bardolino on the shore of Lake Garda where Issey and Ame planned to marry in June.  Originally a fishing village, the town was set in a wine producing area and was now one of the best known resorts on the lake.

We walked along the promenade by the lake on Saturday evening and found a bustling town centre, full of restaurants, caf├ęs and ice cream parlours.  The weather was still warm and we sat outside for our evening meal of spaghetti vongole, fish and coffee washed down with a delicious bottle of their local red wine.
