Best Route from Monterossa to Lake Garda

What would be the most interesting route from Monterossa to Lake Garda?

Through Emilia-Romagna or Lombardy?

Possible stops on the way are Pavia, Cremona, Bergamo, Brescia, or Parma (we'll go to Verona on the way to Venice on the next leg).

Any "must see" out of those places, or a route that's more scenic? I realize that most of it is highway driving, but what would be good stopovers?

you mean Monterosso.

Where exactly on Lake Garda. It is important as it is pointless giving you a route for the west side of the lake when you are on the east. The lake is 50km long and over 60km by road and again where you are staying may determine best route.

e.g the direct drive to where I stay every year (and last 20years) in Lazise is only ~3hrs

There is no such thing is a "must see". One persons "must see" is anothers "why bother". It either interests you or it doesn't

Well Pavia isn't "on the way"

If your final destination is the east side of the lake then you could head to Mantova cutting across the countryside from Parma on the A1 exit for Parma down the Via Colomo through Casalmaggiore or just stay on the Autostrada to Modena and up

If West side then Parma or Brescia.

Again your final destination is important.

e.g. If staying nr Riva after Mantova for instance you are better off driving Autostrada to Rovereto and cutting across the hills to save time.
