I have been several months in planning our first self guided tour of
Italy and have gotten most of my help right here from other travelers. We
are flying in to Milan from Texas and arrive 8 am at Malpensa. We opted
to drive to the lakes area to rest a few days and found a hotel from Don
and Linda in Stresa. On our departure day we found a hotel from a member
of this group (a Texan who lives in Italy) in Como which he says is 25
min. from the airport. Karen Brown's book on Bed and Breakfasts in Italy
name a great B and B near the airport. If you would like details on
these, write to me. We have not had our trip, but I can give you web site
for pictures of the hotel in Stresa. We will be traveling by rent car.
Thanks again to this group for help on every phase of our trip.
Thanks for the information on the price of gas. That helps us a LOT.
