4 days between Lausanne and Italy

Jump to last reply

Hi,
My parents would arrive in Lausanne (from Paris) on Sep 14 at around 5PM. They would have to reach Venice by Sep 18/19th evening. They can walk about 4km on flat land. We would love your inputs on how to make the trip more memorable

Reading through various forum posts, I tentatively planned the following

Sep 14: Stay in Lausanne. Visit the Cathedral/Place de la Palud if time permits?
Sep 15: (start of 4 days Swizz Pass)
Take train to Montreux. Soak the views of Montreux. Take bus to Chillon Castle. 2 hours at Chillon Castle. Take boat back to Veyey and then train back to Lausanne. Collect luggage from Lausanne and head to Grindelwald. Night at Grindelwald

Sep 16: Jungfrau & cruise on Lake Brienz. Night at Grindelwald

Sep 17: Wengen/Murren/Lauterbrunnen

I am unsure about where to stay for Sep 17 and what to do on Sep 18. There are three options that I have thought of

Option 1: Sep 17: Stay in Grindelwald

Sep 18: Train to Venice via shortest route (not very scenic we have heard)

Option 2: Sep 17: Evening train to Zermatt
Sept 18: Matterhorn and train to Dommosodola
Sep 19: To Venice via the long route of Centovalli railway or the shortest route via Milan

Option 3: Sep 17: train to Chur and stay the night
Sep 18: Bernina express and train to Venice/Milan

Is there any other option?

Would love your inputs in resolving our dilemma.

Thanks
