Take a look at the table set up in the square in front of the cathedral. A feast day celebration in progress.
*Here's what our friend Wikipedia has to say: Como Cathedral
It was built in 1396 which by my count makes it 700 hundred years old - an amazing testament to devotion.

After our visit to the cathedral we were treated to a rare back stage tour of the pride of Como - the La Scala Picolina or Little La Scala. A replica of the magnificent la Scala in Milan on a smaller scale but no less opulent.
Opera is queen in Italy and some musicians were rehearsing as we toured. Amazing!
After that it was exploring on our own. Let's face it we looked like tourists but what do we care?
The weather was perfect, just a little chilly, no crowds because the season had just begun and the setting was beautiful.
Next stop the renaissance town of Bergamo.
Until next time,
