Maggiore or ??? after Sansepolcro--end of May, help please

Jump to last reply

I need a little more advice for the end of our trip (late May into the first few days of June). 1 week in Venice, 1 night in Ravenna, 1 week in Sansepolcro (not finalized with down payment yet but decided upon after reading someone's favorable comments here).

That leaves us 5 nights and 4 days by the time we factor in the 6 hour drive from Sansepolcro to the lakes and our need to leave early morning on our last day to get to MPX. So, we've got 4 days to do things.

Is this about the right amount of time for Maggiore? We'd want to take the ferries to see the quaint towns, visit the gardens, do some walking etc. Stresa, from what I've read, seems like it might be a bit too crazy and over run with tourists at this time of year (and perhaps all of the time for us since we much prefer less-touristic locales). Other suggestions for other nearby towns to base that are charming and not crazy and on the lake and have apartment rentals?

Or, if you have a suggestion for an completely different locale than the lakes that would fit in logistically, I'd appreciate it. We live in a state with 10,000 lakes, so our quest is to experience Italy's manmade wonders rather than just nature and water. Thanks for helping me put this trip together.
