Day trip - Bordolino

Dear Family and Friends,

Bordolino is located right on Lake Garda about 16 miles northwest of Verona.  For us to go there we only had to take a bus.  After about 45 minutes we were getting off the bus in Bordolino.

Bordolina is a tourist town, and although there were a lot of tourists there when we were, we did not see other U.S. tourists.  Being in northern Italy, this town attracts many German tourists.  Also the Italians of course. 

We just by chance happened to be here during their wine it was probably much more crowded than usual.

This is a typical shopping street leading down to the lake.

This German tourist was easy to identify.  

Fresh grapes on display for the wine festival.   

We had lunch outside, right on the lake front.  It was great people watching.  As with our other meals in Italy, the food was fantastic.

After lunch we went to the olive oil museum.  It was a good museum that showed the process of olive oil production from harvesting from the tree to finished product.  

Olive oil production has not changed much in all these years.

The museum had a huge gift shop attached.  They had all sorts of olive oil, balsamic vinegars, crackers, breads and other goodies.  All this with free tasting.
We bought olive oil and balsamic vinegar to take with us to enjoy while we were on the cruise.

Although I do not have photos to share of the museum, I have some photos of ripe olives.  By the way, NEVER, pick and olive off the tree and taste it.  Oh my, it is so BITTER!

Had a great day, and we were also happy to get back home to Verona to rest up for another day trip.
