We need to spend a few days in Bellinzona and need to choose between Ascona or Lake Como/Varenna for 3-4 more days. We've been to Bellagio/Varenna/Lake Como before and think it's one of the most beautiful places in the world.
This time it might be more logistically convenient for us to just go to Ascona or to Lugano, rather than going over to Varenna . But we are wondering if we would be disappointed in Ascona/Lake Maggiore compared to Varenna/Lake Como?
Before we come over to the lakes we plan to be in the Dolomites for a week plus.
Would appreciate your thoughts opinions about comparison of the 2 places!
