Driving Venice to Como and back: What do you think

Jump to last reply

I've been to Venice and the Lake Como area but never driven between them; thus, my question:

Our plan is to fly into Venice, stay maybe 3 nights at a hotel, then rent a car and drive to the Lake district, where we'll rent an apartment for about 4 nights. Then we'll drive back to Venice and fly out. My research indicates the driving time is about 3.5 hours one way.

I looked into flying into or out of Milan, but that's not going to work, for a number of reasons, and going into and out of Venice is really the only practical approach for us. The flight out of Venice is 11:30 am, so we may have to drive to Venice the day before. If so, we probably would stay at a hotel near the airport, take the bus into Venice for a stroll and dinner, and then return to the hotel.

So, the question is: Have you ever made the drive between Venice and Como? If so, were there any special difficulties I should be aware of? Also, can you recommend a nice place to stop for lunch or dinner?
