Would you recommend visiting Napier even though it is for a short time?
We currently have a night booked in Taupo to split up the drive from Wellington to Auckland into 2 days.
Do you recommend we detour to Napier for general sight seeing and then drive west to Taupo? Or would you recommend we drive directly to Taupo and spend any sight seeing time in and around Taupo.
Thanks for your help! Just wondering if the detour to Napier is worth our while as we won't likely have time to do a wine tour etc.
