Italy/Switzerland Trip - Need help with itinerary

Jump to last reply

Just discovered this site too. I am taking my 5 young adult children (ages 19 to 24) to Italy & Switzerland late May/early June of 2014. I have traveled to both countries before. The first part of my itinerary is planned, but am having trouble deciding how to do the Switzerland part. There are reasons that I picked the particular places in Italy even though it was hard to decide. Our basic plan is to fly into Rome and then out of Zurich. We will travel by train. So far here is what I was thinking.
Rome - 3 Days
Amalfi Coast - 4 Days - we will do day trips out of the little town of Atrani (5 min. from town of Amalfi)
Venice - 2-3 Days
(possible stops in Switzerland)
Zermatt
Grindelwald
Lucerne
Zurich
I'm open to other suggestions in Switzerland and may keep it to 3 stops total. Zermatt is probably a for sure stop as all the kids really want to go there. We are an active family and will want to have a combination of hiking, possible 1 day of skiing just so they can say they did in Switzerland, and cute towns.

I would love your thoughts. Thank you.
