11 Day Italy & Switzerland Trip

Jump to last reply

We are planning our first trip to Europe in Aug. We are very excited and confused !

We have decided on
Italy ( 7 Days) + Switzerland (4 Days)
We are looking to explore Culture, Food, Countryside and little bit of History/Art. Not yet decided on itinerary, but will be flying into a major airport in Italy (Rome) and flying out of Switzerland (Zurich).

In Italy : We are planning for Rome (2-3 Days) + Florence and 1 Tuscany Small town (2 Days) + Venice (2 Days)

From Venice we will be heading to Switzerland.

In Switzerland: Planning to explore Interlaken, lucerne. Planning to visit Mt jungfrau. From many fodors thread i understand a train journey is a must to explore the picturesque Swiss Alps.

I need help in planning a 4 day trip in Switzerland starting from Venice ending in Zurich.
Please Suggest :

1) How should we travel from Venice to Switzerland?

2) Train Routes that we can take to couple small swiss towns and picturesque valleys and suggestions on cities to stay in.

3) Any small town recommendations in Tuscany Region? I was thinking of Lucca or San Gimignano?

We love exploring Nature, Local Culture and Food/Wine. We are open to go to non touristy back streets and walk around.

Thanks for your time and help.
