Actually I have 10 hours to play with.

Is there anything to do at Lake Como in March?
Worth renting a car for?
Beautiful drive up and down the lake

I'd skip the food and just do Lake Como.  Wasn't impressed with the food. The lake on the other hand was spectacular.

Or I'd just chill. Get food. See the Duomo, walk around etc. Save Como when you have more time.

70 degrees.

So arrive MXP 11am
Rent car
Arrive Carmel 12pm
Walk to MyKafe 1pm
Drive to Lake Como and arrive 3pm
Depart Lake Como 6:30pm
Return car at MXP 8pm
Depart 920pm.

Crazy?
The deep fried calzone from carmel is just awesome, their ravioli is good as well, pizza was not. MyKafe was ok, but nothing special pretty good gilato.

Just driving around Como is so awesome. Driving all the way to bellagio, is 20 or so mile drive around the lake you won't forget. And in bellagio you can take a taxi across the lake and right back, don't even have to get out of your car, pretty neat experience having your car on the lake.

The biggest problem I see is an hour 20 to return a car and make checkin. May have been my experience but the car rental lot is very far from the terminal when I was there after hours, I think there may be a train during regular hours, someone else should weigh in. We waited 30 minutes for a bus to come and take us, or we could of taken a taxi for like 60 euro for the 5 minute drive.

Lake Como is one of the most stunning places I've been.
Do NOT just drive to Como and say you've seen the lake. Ugly city. Need to drive to Bellagio. Although the drive is crazy. Two way one lane road on the side of a cliff
Bellagio is also a quaint little town. Won't be much of anything to do though. Just walk around and chill. Will be too cold to jump into the lake (like I did in August)
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Anyone have a phone number for the chabad house in Milan? Are they still offering to host people for shabbos meals? Also what's the closest shul from the Park Hyatt? Tia.

Can't find the Italy Master Thread. Has anyone been to the kosher 'eatery' at the Tiberio Palace on Capri Island? Reports? Reviews? Looking to go for shabbos in July.

Is there any kosher food in Lake Como? if not what do people usually do for food? Do any restaurants from Milan deliver?

Booked today a round trip  JFK-MXP on EK in November, Final destination is Israel, Yet to be booked..
Should I book a 24hr layover and just go to Lake como, or should i rather do 36hr stop and cover Venice?
