Italy, Switzerland trip ideas

Jump to last reply

We're thinking of going to Italy (flying into Milan) and/or Switzerland (Geneva) this July. It's a last minute trip and we'll likely decide btw the two based on ticket prices. No specific agenda - we'll be there for 7-8 days and thinking of renting a car. Never been to either country.

I was thinking of a few road trips - Milan to Turn or Milan to Venice or maybe Milan to Geneva (or vice versa) and spend a few days in both? Has anyone ever done these and would recommend them (on a car or without)? How hard and scenic is the drive? I wouldn't mind stopping in an in-between city/town for a night as well.

We don't speak a word of Italian (except whatever we can learn from now till then) but one of us speaks a little French - is Geneva better for that? We're just looking to see the country but limit Coliseum-style large tourist attractions - alternate a large city for a few days with a few days in the countryside.

Thank you for any good ideas :)
