Itinerary?: 6 days Switzerland & 4 days Italy

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a trip to visit Switzerland and Italy in June - help and guidance is appreciated! We are thinking of flying into Zurich (from U.S.) and staying in Lucerne for 3 nights, then taking a scenic train to Lugano, and staying there for 3 nights, then traveling to the Cinque Terre and staying there 4 nights. (Then we will visit with relatives, and then travel home.)

The Switzerland part of the trip is what we're not sure of. (Years ago, we went to Zurich/Bern/Geneva, so we weren't planning to revisit those places; we had driven through Lucerne and Lugano and thought we would want to stay there sometime.) We'd like to relax and also explore a bit - we like walking but aren't serious hikers. Does splitting our time between Lucerne and Lugano sound like a good idea? I've read about the Berner Oberland area - should we consider changing our itinerary to stay in Lucern 2 nights, Gimmelwald (or other town) 2 nights, then Lugano 2 nights instead. Or are there other places we should consider? We welcome suggestions about the itinerary and things to do or see!
