Villa Castagnola Loop via Brè 6.9km
There was a funicular just in back of the hotel which we took to go to Mt. Brè where we began our walk.

The overcast weather held when we got to lunch—Spotless was getting into some sort of trouble with the wine bottle, so guide Alisio "air lifted" him out of mischief. Then it was back downhill to the funicular.

We had a wine tasting with some anitpasta which was supposed to just be a prelude for dinner, but it was enough all by itself. It looked like at least one of the restaurants could have used the customers! (above right)
