My husband and I are flying into Milan August 31 for 11 day trip to Italy. It will be his first trip to Italy, my first trip to the lake region. We plan to stay in the lake region for 3 nights.
A friend suggested a small town in Lake Lugano as it is not so overrun by tourists. We like to walk, run, hike, shop, eat and drink well.
Varenna looks beautiful but I dont want to be around Rick Steve's travellers while in Europe. Any suggestions as far as which lake and also which town. We are looking for something overlooking the water for accommodations, not too pricey and not mobs of tourist.
We are 40 something no kids.
