My grandmother was from Cucciago, 30 minutes south of Como. My husband and I plan a visit to go to the cemetery to look for family graves and to City Hall to see her birth certificate. The town was leveled during the war and completely rebuilt so there is nothing similar to when she was a child in the 1890s. However, we are interested in exploring around the region if not the city.
We know some "restaurant Italian" and one of us speaks good Spanish, but we would love to find an English-speaking quide familiar with the history of the region to use for the day.
The only thing we have found online so far would cost 400 euros for the day, way beyond our budget.
Any suggestions very greatly appreciated!
