Subject: #34Sacro Monte#34 (Sacred Mount) in Italy
Hi, Does anyone know how the Sacro Monte (Sacred Mount) along Lake Orta compares to the one near Varallo? There may also be one outside Varese. Travel books seem to rate the one near Varallo to be the best choice but it appears to be quite a distance from Lake Maggiore and I may be car crazy by the time I get to that area. I'll be driving from Milan to: Bergamo, Lake Garda, Bolzano, Val Gardena mountain area, back to Lake Como via St Moritz, then Lake Maggiore. All in 6 days of flexable driving! Mostly going for the views and don't plan to stay one place for long.

Thanks... Frank
