Subject: Lake Como Area - 1st Stop - Where to stay
Hello Group:

I am starting to plan 2 week trip flying in to Zurich and taking a train to Chur where I pick up a car. I would like to head South to the Lake Como area and find a place for a few days stay. I have never experienced Italy but since this is an Alpine trip (Northern Italy only) would like a nice location for my first visit that is more Italy than Switzerland. Can anyone suggest a best site in this area?

Also what kind of road will I find. I see a road leading south out of Chur (A13?) and at Splugen turns into a twisting road (what is it?) then back into a road leading to the northern point of Lake Como (I don't know what that road is ether).

After This stop I am heading to Merono for a few days there to explore the Dolomites.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Best regards,

Mike Rhodes
