Help with 6 day Swiss itinerary

Jump to last reply

My partner and I will be driving through Switzerland from Freiburg in Germany to Arezzo in Italy in June next year.

My partner has never seen Switzerland and, apart from a couple of days in Geneva recently, it's been forty years since I was there. We have six days to spend en route to Italy and would like to take in some of the highlights, though obviously we can only get a taste.

I've been researching but people are so enthusiastic about almost everywhere in Switzerland that I'm having a hard time coming up with a shortlist.

We'd be happy to base ourselves in one or two places and do day trips by car or train from there.

We're not into touristy things, nor do we want to spend time hiking or watersporting etc. We like cities, museums and architecture but we also like lovely countryside and small villages. I'm keen to see the alps and would like to do a day trip by train somewhere to see them.

Below is the roughest of ideas for comment - but I am open to completely changing this plan if I get some other recommendations.

Freiburg
Vevey and Lausanne
Thun
Thun
Lucerne
Lucerne
Lugano

Thanks in anticipation
