Croatia, Italy and Switzerland in 2 weeks

Jump to last reply

We are a couple in our mid-20s doing a 14- 18 day trip to Croatia, Italy and Switzerland . Budget is $3000-3500 per person including flight (about $1200). May 8-May 12 we are spending in Split, Croatia and surrounding islands. All plans for this portion of the trip have been determined. The rest we are unsure about.

May 13-May 16 We would like to take an overnight ferry from Split to Venice and spend 3-4 full days in Italy. Neither one of us has been to Italy before and would like some suggestions on the best areas to see in such a short period of time. Don't need to see big cities, although Florence would be great if it's possible.

May 17- May 21: We would travel by train (possibly overnight) to central Switzerland. Renting a car would probably be best at this point. We both snowboard, so it would be ideal to find a region where snowboarding is still a possibility at that time of year. Then we would drive to Zurich from where we can take our return flight. Also thinking about doing a layover to Amsterdam for 6-7 hrs for lunch before returning to northeastern US.

I know that this is a lot to do in two weeks but we are both young and energetic and are avoiding big cities with a lot of sightseeing. Any suggestions on what to do/ where to go in Italy and Switzerland would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
