One night in Switzerland - Itinerary help?

Jump to last reply

I am traveling from Paris to Venice the end of September, with one night to spend in Switzerland in between. I have not yet organised my departure from Paris and want to maximise the little time available to see the older and scenic parts of Switzerland.

I have 2 dilemmas. the first is the mode of travel to Switzerland from Paris and then onwards to Venice the following day. The second is what part of Switzerland offers a pretty village landscape/ views to stay the night, but is easily accessed given time limitations?

issue 1 - mode of travel. I have researched that flying out of Paris is an option, or taking a high speed train. Once in Switzerland, there is a scenic train route on the Berlin Express, after which I would have to somehow find my way from Tirano to Venice? Alternatively, I could just stay in the one spot and explore the area before flying onwards to Venice, or maybe depart by high speed train?

Issue 2 - location. I have learnt from reading posts from others that Lucerne is beautiful, as is also the Lake Geneva area. But, If I must choose only one location, where is best?.

I do not ski, but snow is good and mountainous scenery is definitely a must! Nor do I hike, too old for that now. But am generally up to most things that involve historical architecture, history generally, and traditional culture.

Any advice is welcome. What would you who have experience do if you were me?
