Lake Maggiore is one of the favorite destinations of people who live in Milan and want nature and relaxation. It is a very quiet area, full of nice restaurants and bars with a lake terrace. But also a way to learn about a nature reserve composed of a fauna and a protected flora. Surely in the north of Italy, you know Lake Como, famous for its villas and the famous people that occupy them, but Lake Maggiore is not far behind. Its villas and gardens will leave you speechless, like the Borromean Islands.
Just 40 minutes from Milan, Bergamo is one of the most beautiful cities in Northern Italy. Unesco heritage offers a wide artistic/cultural heritage. Choose between the upper town and the lower town and try the famous Casoncelli.
5 days in Veneto will not be enough to see all that this beautiful region of Northern Italy offers. An area rich in culture, gastronomy, legendary cities such as Verona or Venice is part of this wonderful heritage. Today’s tour is more centered in the area from Venice to the Alps (Cortina).
The airports of the region are Venice Marco Polo, or Treviso (only Ryanair). If you want to rent a car always do it at the airport, but I do not recommend it because it is expensive to leave the car in a car park in Venice (40 € / day). Another option is to rent it once you’ve visited Venice and Burano.
