Innsbruck, Lake Garda, Lake Como, and Lake of Constance

We are contemplating a 4day car trip doing a loop listed above. Does this make sense logistically and is it worth seeing all these lakes?

Nice loop, but I would sub the Dolomites for Constance for a change of pace.

I agree. You still can wind up at the Lake Constance (Bodensee), but at its eastern end, in Lindau. From there easy drive to Fuessen Neuschwanstein or Munich.

Great, thank you. Any interesting places to stop along the way? Any suggestions for cute B&Bs at all three lakes?
