Great!



I took a look in Streetview and it seemed to me that much of the road has trees and you can't really see much towards the lake and the road seemed narrower. Maybe I'm wrong about that . Also one of the recommended stops was Malcesine, which is on the east coast. There is also a cable car that get's you up Monte Baldo.

But if you say west coast is better, I believe you, I've never been there
The advantage of driving on the east coast is that you always can see the lake on your side. You can drive from Peschiera to Torbole while always having the lake at sight, which doesn't apply to the west coast. Also, in the upper part of the west coast there are a lot of tunnels. On the east coast there are smaller villages than the ones on the west one (Salò, Gardone, Toscolano-Maderno are small towns, not villages), depends pretty much on your taste.

In the end, Spinoza is from Brescia and I'm from Verona, so we'll never agree on which side it's best. But you can take a ferry from Sirmione to Limone, for instance, right in the middle

One thing is sure: mount Baldo is a must-see.

Thanks for your comments

I still have time to decide. Hopefully the weather will play with us.
Fact is, whatever side I choose, I will take the other one next time I'm in the area

Here are some nice pictures I shot on my short trip between Monfalcone and Miramare Castle (map).

And another tunnel...



Tunnel after tunnel...



At Miramare Castle I parked my car between 2 other cars, in a very tight space:

Quote that!

For me, living in the center of Rome, that space is the biggest I can ever find.

Unlike Paris-style-parking, I like to park my car without touching other cars.

Did you have to touch the other cars with that shitload of available space?

All of that is true. West side is harsher, east side is gentler, both are great. It depends on taste indeed.

Eheh, I only lived a couple of years in Brescia, so I'm not that biased

Agree on that... but I think you can see it better from west coast, in its entirety.

There are some places where you can park easily and safely, all subjected to payment, of course: the silos near the railway station, the "Molo 4" near Tripovich theatre, near the court, the Giulia shopping centre and along the Rive.

I have reserved accommodation in Sirmione, 3 km from the historic center.
I came up with these 2 plans:

1. West: http://goo.gl/maps/CNYx4
2. East: http://goo.gl/maps/rTIww -I could take the ferry from Malcesine to Limone and drive from there acording to the route.

Option 1 seems nicer, my only concern is it would get late when I reach Malcesine and I could miss the cable car and the great views from up there. Also I still have to drive to Ingolstadt, so maybe I should ditch some of the stops...

EDIT: One more thing, which way is better coming from Gubbio to Assisi?
Google Maps gives 2: http://goo.gl/maps/HexeZ or http://goo.gl/maps/tg88b
My GPS gives me the second although it seems longer and slower?
