This week we ask Vera Mazzoni, front of house manager at Villa d’Este in Lake Como, about summer on the water. Also in the programme: Monocle’s Chris Lord tastes the salty air on Block Island, New England and we speak to Maurizio Orlacchio of Borgo Santandrea on the Amalfi Coast – the first new hotel to open in the area in more than 10 years. Plus: our correspondents from around the world answer listener questions, from Tallinn to Montreal.
