Switzerland and Italy 8 days

Jump to last reply

I will traveling with my mother to Switzerland and Italy in September this year from India.
I am now stuck as to how I plan the itinerary considering she is 60.

Here is my current plan
Sep 11:
Reach Zurich by Flight @ 7pm, reach Lucerne night halt
Sep 12:
Mount Titlis and evening leisure
Sep 13:
Jungfrau day trip
Sep 14:
Checkout and reach Zurich and checkin hotel there
Rhine Falls and Lindt Chocolate Factory trip
Sep 15:
Reach Rome
Sep 16:
Rome full day
Sep 17:
Rome full day
Sep 18:
Rome - Venice, reach by 12, checkin hotel
Half day Venice
Sep 19:
Half day Venice
Checkout and leave Venice by 3pm and reach Milan Airport by 7.30pm
10pm Flight back to India

My questions are like, do I need to skip Rome or Venice? I am torn between both of them.
Since my mother might not be able to do a lot of walking and we might skip Vatican, do I skip 1 day in Rome and do 2 days in Venice instead?

In Switzerland, I am planning to get the Swiss Rail Pass, should I skip Zurich and do some day trip to Zermatt / Brienzer Rothorn instead?

Is doing Jungfrau and Titlis during Sep both needed and won't be like similar?
I added both from the point of view the train journeys and the scenery both of them offer.
