Best Route from Welt to Bellagio, Italy

Going to pick up my 328xi Sports Wagon in about 3 weeks. Super excited! After picking up the car we're planning to drive down to Bellagio, Italy (on Lake Como) to spend a few relaxing days. Anybody have any tips for the best route to take on that drive? Obviously we can take the main highways, but there are passes through the Alps that look like they might be fun, and any advice would be much appreciated!

I do not know what would be the best route from the Welt to Bellagio but you might consider heading down to the Stelvio Pass first. If you decide to drive the Stelvio Pass here are some things to consider: if it is rainy or foggy or there is low cloud the road will still be there but the view will not - the view is worth seeing. If you drive the pass on a weekend expect to see every bicycle and motor bike from miles around to be on the pass that day. Traffic will reach its peak some time in the middle of the day so try to start the pass early in the morning. How do I know this? I drove the pass on a wet Sunday around lunch time. My wife was less than pleased with my choice of route.

If you stray into Switzerland remember that you will require a Swiss Vignette - it costs just over $40.

As you approach Bellagio avoid driving up either the road from Lecco or the one from Como. Both of these roads are very narrow and are no fun in the dark. Instead take a car ferry over from Varenna or Cadenabbia.

It's a shame but here is very little use made of this forum - the fourth most recent response dates back to October of 2015! I would recommend asking your questions on the ED Forum.

Have a great trip.
