My family and I are looking at a backroads drive from Venice airport (Polo) up through Treviso, Asolo/Maser, Marostica and Bassano del Grappo--seeing the sights along the way--and then rejoin the autostrada at Vicenza to drive to Torri del Benaco for a 2 day stay. Given that we have teenagers, the point is to take a little backroads jaunt and peek at some main sights (no shopping for pottery or drinking grappa!) This is just a little detour on a larger trip involving a longer stay in Venice and then a week in Tuscany.
What sort of time frame are we looking at? I really can't tell from looking at my Mich. map. Can we actually get to Lake Garda in a day (if we leave Venice late morning and don't care if we get there after dinner) or should we plan to spend a night somewhere en route? Main sights we want to see are Villa Barbaro in Maser/Asolo, the Museo dei Alpini in B del G, the castle at Marostica. We plan to come back to Venice later in our trip through Verona, so plan to see Verona and perhaps Vicenza then. Thanks--
