    Italians probably aren't finding it funny.

    Couple of hours north of Bolzano, was there a few weeks ago for skiing. Could have been a much longer ski trip had we chosen a few weeks later.

    We're about 2 weeks behind Italy, and Germany is about 9 days behind.

    Oh well.

    And there's many more old codgers in Blighty than Italy. Not to mention the trains you all seem to love so much, you squeeze yourselves onboard just to get a lookie. Strange pastime.

    I think you missed the part where Germany is 9 days behind Italy...

    We're booked for the Monaco Historique GP in May (driving down via ferry). Just waiting to see what unfolds.

    People may only travel around for work reasons, and for emergencies. If you can't demonstrate either of these, then you could be fined. Switzerland lets Italian border workers into Ticino. This is seen as necessary since 4000 of the health workers there are Italian residents.
