14 days by car from Milan

We plan to travel by air to Milan in September and pick up a car. We have 14 nights to spend in North of Italy. I would like to have 3-4 bases from which we can do day trips. We have been to Venice so don't want to go there. We enjoy nice scenery and are happy to drive reasonable distances but don't want to have to move hotels too often.I am particularly interested in mountains and lakes and would like a trip into Switzerland. I would welcome suggestions on good centres to bags ourselves. I haven't been to Milan before so would maybe stay a couple of nights at end of trip. Is that a problem with a car? Would be better just to do a day trip from another base. It is so difficult to choose from so many beautiful places

Difficult to answer, depends on what your expectations and interests and how many mile are you planning to do.

You can start to set up a preliminary program and and then submit it to the forum.

No problem in Milan with the car, once you park the car you can move by feet or public transport.

If you're prepared to drive 4hrs you can go to the Dolomiti, they are a spectacular area and the quality of the hospitality there is just far superior to anywhere else. Places from Cortina to San Candido to Dobbiaco to lago di Carezza are just fantastic, especially in September.
