10 Nights in Switzerland

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a trip to Switzerland in the summer 2013 (early as July or as late as late September). Help with following:

Travel Day - Houston - Zurich - with option of doing immediately via train:
*Lucerne for 2 nights or
*go directly to Lauterbrunen and stay in Murren, Gimmelwald or Wengen

Then stay in Wengen for 3 nights or 4 nights if we miss Lucerne

Then go to Montreaux and Geneva area OR go directly from Lauterbrunen down to Varenna and spend the rest of the time in Lake Como, Italy area or Cinque Terre area and then fly back from Milan or Venice to Houston.

Questions:
Is Montreaux/Lake Geneva a better idea than northern Italy. Or should we stick with all Swiss trip?
Is July a better time than September? How long before things are shutting down in October?

Thanks!
