Bernese Oberland and Italian Lakes Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

I’m planning a trip for next June to the Italian lakes region and the Bernese Oberland region of Switzerland. I found Fodor’s Northern Italy and Switzerland itinerary on line and I was hoping for additional input. I have 11 days to spend so I need to cut out a few days and I’m not sure which ones to limit. Here’s Fodors link: http://www.fodors.com/world/europe/itineraries/northern-italy-and-switzerland-the-lakes-to-the-mountains-44/

They have a 2 week trip starting in Milan and going to:
1. Lake Maggiore (staying in Stresa)
2. Ticino (staying in Lugano)
3. Bellagio
4. Luzern
5. Bernese Oberland (they suggested Interlaken, but I would prefer Lauterbrunnen)
6. Fly home from Zurich

My priorities are Bellagio and Lauterbrunnen. Should I just visit Luzern on a day trip from Lauterbrunnen? Should I skip Lake Maggiore altogether? Are some of these places similar? Our interests range from hiking to dining to walking through small villages and enjoying the local culture. We’re not interested in resort like atmospheres or large scale tourist things. Your input would be appreciated.
