We really enjoyed the peace and quiet and the drive. It would be very pleasant if he explained something about the surroundings, for example something about the ruins of the Pirate Castle and its renovation. There is definitely something to tell about the history of Lake Magiore. With best regards Dagmar and Erst-Jürgen
