      My husband and I are flying from JFK to Linate and don't know which lake to stay at. We are in our
      late 70s and fit, although I have difficulty climbing steep hills., but in general I have no limitations.
      I was sold on Maggiore until I started reading reviews that Orta was charming and romantic and now
      I'm confused. We stayed in Como a couple of years ago and loved it. Would you recommend staying
      2 nights in each as a compromise? We like good food, Villa Crespi has some good specials but the
      prices are a tad steep and I wonder if it's worth it. Would it be smarter to stay in town and have the
      restaurants close by? We will have a car and we're used to driving all over Italy...we have been in the
      country quite a bit and love everything about it. I want to go to the factory outlets and have read about
      the Lora Piana and Colombo Cashmere and Alessi as places to shop. Any comments about any of this
      will be very much appreciated! And I thank you in advance! We are going to be there from Sept. 10-14
      and wonder about the weather as well. lorac yellamo

      we are coming to northern Italy in our small campervan, at the beginning of august, and wondered if anyone knew of any possible quiet spots suitable for wild camping... we are travelling from UK, through Germany and Switzerland before arriving in Italy. We shall have our canoe too, so somewhere near a lake would be good

      What's the best way to get to Lago d'Orta by public transport? I'd prefer not to rent a car in Italy.

    • boat hire in Lago d'Orta

      by annapeter Online Now Apr 30, 2006 at 8:15 AM

      Does anyone know where i can rent a small boat in or around Lago d'Orta. I would like to be able to keep it for around a week. It does not have to be anything at all fancy, a little rowing boat would do. I would be grateful to receive any suggustions.

      Thank you for your help
