We are flying into Milan Linate on 25th August and from there going straight to Gavi for 3 nights. We will then be returning to Milan. All transport will be looked after for us during this time.
We can't decide if we should hire a car or not as it seems to be quite expensive so we are wondering if we will be able to manage without one. I assume we can get the train from Milan to Stresa. Is it easy to get from Stresa to Cannero?
With Cannero as a base, will buses/ferries be sufficient to get around and see the sights in the area? We were considering the Maggiore Express for one of our days but some of the reviews have put us off.
