northern Italy this fall, dolomites and piedmont

Jump to last reply

Was hoping to have some fine tuning of my trip this fall (Sept 20- Oct 1).

As planned now:

3 nights in hotel Rosa Alpina, Badia, Dolomites; going to do some day hikes, relax in hotel etc

Considering 1 night on lake garda in an upscale hotel

4 nights Piedmont, booked Villa Altea in Mango 20 mins outside Alba, focus here will be food and wine

2 nights Milan, booked tickets to Opera on last night

Fly out
We will rent a car.

Couple of questions :
1. On Sunday Sept 24, worth spending one night on the lake? Too late in season? Would we be better off driving straight to Piedmont area? Perhaps one night in Verona instead?

2. Villa Altea in Mango close enough to Alba/main wineries etc? Not the typical sort of place we'd stay but got good reviews and already stretched out hotel budget with first place. Think we'd be better off with a standard hotel in town?

3. Would you add an extra day in Milan instead of Piedmont (or instead of Lake Garda)? Unlikely we will be back any time soon

Thanks so much for input!
