Need help with Switzerland

Jump to last reply

Hi all

after a very much loved first trip to Italy and France last year, we are starting to plan a trip back again (yay!!!)

will be in sept/october


So ... my thoughts so far

- Fly into Milan
- stay overnight in milan (flight arrives around 9pm)
- see the last supper and duomo in the morning, then train to Sondrio in the afternoon

- 7 nights in Sondrio (family there, and they will arrange itinerary for this part)

- Family will take us to Tirano, where we board the Bernina Express to Chur, then continue on to Lucerne.

- 4 nights in Lucerne

- Train to Interlaken for 3 nights in Interlaken

- Train to Florence for 6 nights in Florence

- train to Rome for 5 nights in Rome.

We will have an 8 yr old with us ... so happy with a slower pace, and to do day trips from Florence and Rome rather than moving around all the time.

My questions are mainly about the swiss section, as I am ok with the italy section for the moment.

So - my questions
- any better ideas on itinerary flow?
- train travel - last time we purchased prems in italy as I am happy to lock in times and dates. Do you get prems in Switzerland? or do I need a Swiss Pass?
- if I get a Swiss Pass, how to book the Interlaken - Florence section? Do I do just the Swiss part with the pass and book tickets for the Italy part?
- what is a swiss half fare card? do I need one?

- stay in Interlaken, or a smaller town further up the mountains?

thanks
