  Yeah, right! :D

What to buy: The bottle of Limoncino (the famous liquer made from lemons, which I really loved though I'm not a fan of alcohol) that you will buy here, may cost you something like half the price more than the one you buy in a Super Market BUT - this has a "traditional" name and stamp neeeaaah.

I bought some bottles to bring back home as presents to my beloved ones, having no idea of the usual price of the product. I should have known better, but, ok, it was lovely anyway, and the bags where proudly mentioning the name of the place "Orta San Giulio" - what more could I ask? :D

(Maybe I should have bought some postcards as souvenirs from this Lago, and then buy some limoncino in any Autogrillo I would find first :D )

What to pay: I gave something like 7,5 euros while the same volume cost 5 euros elsewhere.
