Italian Lakes September

Jump to last reply

Planning 10 day trip to Lake District in mid September with a side trip to the Dolomite region. Looking for input on Itinerary.
1. Fly to Milan from US. Rent car at airport (Autoeurope best choice for car rental?) and drive to Bellagio for a 3 night stay at Hotel Belvedere. The options are to use very expensive transport service to take us to Bellagio, try to navigate public transportation after flying overnight, or driving. We will not need a car in Bellagio but the three day cost would be about the same as private transport. Leaving lake Como on Sunday and rental car agencies are not open, could pick up in Como on Sat. however limited hours and if something did not work we would be stuck without car to take to next destination. Day trips to Tremezzo, Menaggio and Varenna.
2. Drive to Dolomite region...looks to be 4 hour drive. Stay at Alder Spa in Ortisei, Val Gardena for 3 nights. Hiking, biking, driving the Great Dolomite road. What are the best of the Dolomites???
3. Drive to Stresa, Lake Maggiore stay at Hotel La Palma for last 3 nights. Day trips? Isola Bella, take train to Domodossola, then Locarno, ferry back to Stresa, can we do in one day? Should we day trip to Lugano from Bellagio or Stresa?
4. Departure day - 9:35 am flight out of MXP leave hotel at 5:30 to drive to airport and return rental car arriving at airport 3 hours before flight 6:30...enough time, is this realistic??
Any input on itinerary, transportation, day trips etc would be much appreciated. Thank you so much in advance!!
