Advice for 6 nights 7 Days in Switzerland

Jump to last reply

I am planning a 2.5 week vacation to Italy and Switzerland for next July. We are a family of 4 with 2 teen ager boys. We love hiking and outdoor activities. Having been to Italy before, I have already planned out the itinerary for Italy. I am looking to spend 6 nights 7 days in Switzerland and looking for help to build an ideal itinerary. I know 6 nights are not enough, but that is the most I can do for this trip. My family prefers to use one place as the central hub and then do daily trips/excursions if that is a possibility. Considering this criteria, would you be able to help with the below?

1. We will be taking a flight from Venice to Zurich. Should I rent a car or would trains be a better medium of transportation?
2. Is there one area that would be better to use as a central hub for hotel stay (like Lucern) and then do daily trips from there?
3. Or would you recommend splitting the stay in 2 separate areas?
4. What hotels would you recommend for each location since we are family of 4?
4. What are the top activities you would recommend I cover for this trip?
5. We are returning from Zurich, so should I plan to stay the last night in Zurich?

It would be great if some subject matter experts can provide a good recommendation of itinerary, hotel locations and activities, considering that we are there only for a week. Thanks much!
