Which lake in northern Italy is more scenic?
Has more sights of interest?
Is nicer to swim in (Fall season)?
Is less expensive overall?
Everyone has a favourite lake (for different reasons), so expect a variety of responses to your question. All the lakes are beautiful, so rather than rank their beauty, here's some information about them all, and you can draw your own conclusions for which better suits your preferences.
Compared to Lake Garda:
Swimming is best done in the northern towns on Lake Como.
Sirmione offers exceptionally good swimming on Lake Garda.
Lake Garda is probably a better value – Family friendly and it also attracts more variety in ages.
This earlier thread discusses all the lakes
Como -vs- Maggiore:
Ahhh the always precious Vagabonda! (ciao!)
I'd add just a thing. At the question
>Is nicer to swim in (Fall season)?
given the "FALL" specification, I'd rather enquire water temps than the beuty of the beaches.. They won't be crowded anyway...
About the Garda Lake, for sure the waters are warmer in the south.... (less deep).... but clearer in the north, for the very same reason.
