We are planning our trip to Europe for next September. We will start in Zurich and spend 3 nights in Murren. From there we are planning to take the train to the Italian Lake district. Because we have only 3 days (nights) to spend there we'd like to make sure we spend that time wisely. We love Italy, and so I'm sure we will enjoy wherever we go. But we would like to avoid the real tourist traps, and stay somewhere with beautiful scenery, which is convenient to trains. Hopefully on a lake. I am getting the feeling from what I've read that Lake Maggiore may be the most preferable Lake for us. Does anyone have any suggestions on a hotel (mid-range) that is clean, comfortable, and friendly! What is a "must see" in this part of Italy?
Thank you for any suggestions you may have.
