Help planning 2 weeks in Northern Italy; Dolomites or Mt. Bianco area

Jump to last reply

We are in early planning stages of a two week trip June/July 2015. We will probably fly into Venice, spend 2-3 nights there then rent a car and drive on to next destination. We will be going to Milan at some point to visit with our Italian exchange student from last summer.(probably 2 nights there). Our other destination is Turin and surrounding areas(day trip probably to Alba and other towns. We'll fly home from Milan(back to U.S.)
I'm wondering about the Dolomites vs. the area around Monte Bianco or Cervinia. We would probably do some hiking, exploring,learning history of area, enjoying spectacular scenery. Just wondering your recommendations, impressions of the two areas. Favorite towns and places to visit in those areas.? This portion obviously will be added either before or after Milan.
Or if there are other areas that would make more sense, I'd love those suggestions too. I feel as though I'm just learning about this area of Italy!!

We will have our 17 yr. old son and possibly our 20yr. old son with us. Both are well traveled. We usually pick one or two places and stay put(you can read my other trip reports under my name) so this will be a little different with several locations.
Thanks in advance-Fodorites have helped tremendously in planning our other trips so thank you!!
