The Lakes Region in Italy/Switzerland for 25th Anniversary?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I have a big anniversary coming up and would like to celebrate with a trip. Fortunately, the kids will be at camp from July 3-25 so we have a decent window. I'm looking for suggestions for somewhere to spend a week or 10 days. We are from New Orleans so we will be hoping to avoid the heat and we love the mountains so the lakes region in Italy and/or Switzerland seem like a good choice. We tend to prefer small villages where we can stay in one place and explore via day trips. We like to get to know the local ristorante or trattoria and to stay somewhere that we don't have to get into the car every time we want to get a bite or have a glass of wine. We like good food and wine, the outdoors, art and architecture. We like a bit off the beaten path but I realize that July in Italy will be full of other American tourists.

Any suggestions for a destination for us?
