Paris to Milan, via Switzerland - Family Trip Early April 2015

Jump to last reply

Our family of 4 (incl. kids aged 6 and 9) will be traveling from Paris to Milan in early April 2015 (week before Easter). We will leave Paris on Wed. and want to be in Italy (Florence or Pisa) on Saturday morning. We'd like to use this as an opportunity to see Switzerland for the first time and understand the time window is short. Our original plan was to take TGV from Paris to Zurich, then Zurich to Chur to St. Moritz and stay two nights in Silvaplana. This would allow us to experience the Alps and also take the scenic bernina express (or regional trains along the same rail lines) from St. Moritz to Tirano then on to Milan and our final destination in Italy. Our main interests include just seeing a new part of the world, taking photographs, walking around, and experiencing a taste of alpine life. We will not be interested in skiing, museums or shopping. We assume we will stay the night near Florence or Pisa on Friday night to be closer to our destination Saturday morning.

1) Is there a better, more "efficient" route to get this experience in Switzerland given that we are traveling from Paris and to Italy? Our current plan revolves around the Bernina train route (Rhaetian) given our reading on this scenic route.

2) If we keep this plan, does anyone have any family-friendly suggestions for things to do in the Upper Engadin area?

Thanks so much for any insight!!
