Swiss Christmas Trip, What makes sense?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are in our 50s, considering a Christmas trip to Europe. We can spend 2 weeks and flexible on the dates. Friends live in Lugano, so, we're thanking on making this a primarily Swiss trip--open to anything. We've been invited to their place for Christmas, but we can see them anytime during our trip.

We've been to N. Italy, Austria, Munich, Paris, etc. A few years ago we had a great time in Vienna for Christmas and ended up in Lucerne for New Years- hotel and fireworks on the lake were awesome. If we did that again, we would fly out of Zurich, back to US. Friends have suggested Glacier Express and hoping off and on along the route staying overnight in various locations.

Trying to figure out what the best plan might be, so, we are not locked in to any one train or route. We just want make a good choice re: where to fly in and make out way around at a reasonable pace. We would stay with our friends in Lugano for 3-4 nights. Winding up in Lucerne is not a must if we cannot make the itinerary work.. We ski, but we would take our clothes and rent boots and skis if we decide to do so--if it works it works. We like it all: walks, hikes, shops, boats, incline, the hotel atmosphere, the bar, cool restaurants--local flavor and nice people ++.

We are looking forward to a nice seasonal break after a long hard year at work. We are not limited by a specific budget this trip. Ready to have some fun! Thanks in advance for any suggestions! K
