As a teenager in the 1950s i came to Lake Garda Italy with my mother .
Then we stayed at the Hotel Centrale in Riva del Garda. This holiday in 2010 i stayed in Peschiera del
Garda at the opposite end of Lake Garda.--- On the first holiday ,after 10pm ,i heard
singing from outside, so went on the little balcony of my room .On the next balcony was
my mother,and we listened to a Male Voice Choir singing 3 verses of "Amazing Grace".
The choir was in the Square below near the Tower.I still think of this time, with the
mountain behind and the lake in front , in the nearly dark evening. That holiday was
a coach holiday that included a trip to Verona, and we saw the so called "Juliet balcony "This
time in 2010 i missed it on my trip.PESCHIERA DEL  GARDA  ITALY.   My  hotel for 2 nights   Peschiera  del  Garda.

I took the public bus from Peschiera to Riva del Garda by the eastern shore of the lake. Lovely views. Riva was just as i remember it. A lovely place with the Italian Alps behind it. The bus ride was just over 2 hours. RIVA DEL GARDA  ITALY.

--- Trieste a city in Northern Italy in a narrow strip of Italian territory,between the Adriatic
Sea and Slovena.. Croatia is 30km.,to the south. I took a ride on the Opicina Tramway. It
is a tram and funicular hybrid. The tram goes from Piazza Oberdan in Trieste to the
village of Opicina in the hills. On the steepest section the tram is pushed by cable tractor.I believe
there as been a accident and the tram may not be running.TRIESTE  ITALY.  -- Palazzo della  Luogotenenza.
