driving from Verona Airport to Riva Del Garda

I have read that the drive from Verona Airport to Riva Del Garda is the 'Bonkers Road' which suggests it is quite dangerous, is this what others have experienced?

We are planning to take a few days in Riva Del Garda and then Verona and as it is at the end of September beginning of October we are wondering which way round to do this depending on the climate, would a night or 2 nights be enough for Verona as we are not great History buffs we just like to wander the piazza and soak up the atmosphere and see a smattering of sights, we love Florence, is Verona worth the detour?

This is two questions I know but any help would be much appreciated.

Hi, if you mean the SS12, I haven't driven the road but have been on it in a coach several times. I'm not sure why it would be called the Bonkers Road!

This thread may help:

Given the time of year I would do Riva first then spend some time in Verona.

Verona is a beautiful, compact, very walkable city with a lot to see and do. I would suggest three nights/ two full days.

The Verona Card may save you some money depending what you want to see:

That's total rubbish - it's a good road.

Thank you, over exaggeration it seems, think that way round would be good.

We regularly drive from Verona airport to the lake and after trying different routes we now use SS62/SS12/SP5 and join the lake road at Lazise then it's straight up the side of the lake to Riva del Garda. You could use the A22/SS240 instead of driving up the lake but the other way is much nicer.
