We are traveling to Italy (Lake Como area with lakeLugano, Parma area and CT) in October for 8 days and would like to know your recommendations in terms of itineraries and distribution of time. I was thinking maybe 3 nights in Como, 3 nights around Parma, and 2 nights in CT. We will arrive and depart from Milan. We probably will rent a car to drive around the lakes and from Milan to Parma , Lucca, returning the car in La Spezia (is this recommended?)
Is one night good enough for CT? How is the temp
Is 3 days enough for Como ( we want to drive to Lake Lugano too) ( probably stay during the weekend how busy is it)
Thank you so much for your input!!!
