Italian lakes itinerary

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip for a large group of friends and we want to start in the Lake Region for two nights, landing in Milan, and later going to Tuscany. I have traveled many times to Italy but never been to this region and have read so much on the internet that it's a blur. The company I am using to tailor this trip suggests we stay in Stresa because they have good accommodations they can line up. We'll be traveling by coach so the smaller towns can't be considered for lodging. I thought to arrive and go to Stresa and since it will be in the morning, we have time to take a boat ride around Lake Maggiore, then check into hotel and explore the town. The following day I have asked for an excursion by coach over to Como then a boat ride to Bellagio for lunch and then one of the Villas in the afternoon. Return to Stresa. I know it's just a taste but I want to know about the time it takes to go from Stresa to Como. Internet says 1 hour, 8 minutes but I want a real person who has been to both lakes to give me a true understanding of what we will experience. Part of me thinks we should stay both days in Stresa and do the villas on the islands or I should I push to go to Como and stay two nights. I just read that Stresa is a lovely area and Como more industrial.....but the northern part of the Lake Como is the beauty. And so many friends have heard that Bellagio is the belle. A must see . Anyone been to both who can give me their reaction? Would much appreciate. TKS
