17-day trip to Switzerland

Jump to last reply

I am a new poster but a big fan of this forum. We (hubby and myself) are planning a trip to Switzerland (and perhaps a few days in the Lake Como area, and Venice) in August next year. I have done my homework and read many, many posts in this forum-- thanks to all the faithful Fodorites who unselfishly, and tirelessly share their expertise and experiences, I have come up with a preliminary travel itinerary. It is packed, and perhaps over- scheduled but reading so may wonderful trip reports makes me keep squeezing more into the 17-day trip. So, please help me figure out if the itinerary below will work.
Day 1/2 - travel day from San Francisco, CA to Zurich, train to Lucerne (Hotel -2 nights)
Day 3 - Lucerne: Mt. Pilatus, city walk (Chapel Bridge)
Day 4 - Checkout, travel to Wengen (check out Interlaken for a couple of hrs on way-stow luggage at train sta.) - stay at Hotel Edelweiss? (3 nights - wondering if we should actually spend 4 nights in the OB)
Day 5-6 - Jungfrau one day (I hope the weather will cooperate on at least one of our two full days) Trammelbach Falls, check out nearby villages (Murren, Grindelwald, Gimmelwald)
Day 7 - Train to Montreux (base for 3 nights), hope to arrive early enough to spend afternoon in Geneva
Day 8 - Montreux: Chateau de Chillion, boat to Vevey, etc.
Day 9 - Day trip to Gruyeres and Chocolate Factory (Broc)
Day 10 - Train to Zermatt, see the Matterhorn, train to Gonergrat - overnight
Or spend the night in Brig (cheaper hotel?)
Day 11 - Catch the Glacier Express to St Moritz - where does one with limited budget stay in this ritzy town?
Day 12 - Catch Bernina Express to Tirano; take train to Varenna, then ferry to Bellagio - stay at Hotel Florence? 2 nights
Day 13 - Varenna/Bellagio - lake tour
Day 14 - Train from Varenna to Venice
Day 15 - Venice
Day 16 - Venice
Day 17 - Fly home to San Francisco ������
Please tell me must- do's, and don'ts, at these places, what/where to cut or add. We would also like to add Bern to the trip, if possible. One issue I see is deciding which Swiss Pass to purchase - we're going to be in Switzerland for 11 days, I wonder if it's still most cost-effective to buy a 15-day Swiss Pass...
