Done Lake Como, where next?

Got 3 days at the end of a Lake Como trip and would appreciate any advice where to head? We were thinking of heading further into the mountains to a spa in Bormio area but the weather forecast isn't great. We ultimately fly back from Milan but don't mind a drive of up to 3-4 hours back to the airport. Would like to keep out of the cities though and somewhere relaxed. Any tips appreciated thanks

If the weather isn't good in Bormio you could visit another Lake, Garda is very different from Lake como and you have the added bonus of nearby Verona and the Arena.

Just to add that if you do go to Bormio, go over the Bernina and Forcola pass from Tirano and stop off in Livigno to get duty free petrol and any other duty free items that you want to buy.

Would agree Lake Garda is a completely different Lake, very big and diverse, Mountainous to the North almost sea like to the South,

Would go to Bormio anyway, the spa is the best on bad weather (water too warm for the last days hot temperature). Go to Bagni Vecchi amd enjoy the food and the shopping in the centre.

If you prefer a nice city for indoor tourism instead go to Bergamo or Mantua

While on Lake Como you can visit Bergamo, which is close enough and worth visiting!

Bormio Spa is really a good choice (http://www.bagnidibormio.it/), it really deserves a visit!

Have a nice stay!
