Switzerland and Italy in a week

Jump to last reply

Hi! I posted a few months ago asking advice about a honeymoon that I am planning at the beginning of May and received a lot of advice. After considering all the advice and looking at travel books, I have finally been able to narrow down my list of priorities considerably, however, perhaps not enough. After reading this, 99% will be shaking their heads saying that it is too much. I am having troubles deciding what to remove then to make it more enjoyable.

Here is my fixed schedule: Arrive in Zurich April 30th at 7:30 in the morning. Leave from Rome at 3 in the afternoon on May 7th.

Here are my planned cities/sites to visit:
3 days in Switzerland - Guaranteed to visit Luzern, Interlaken (perhaps sleep in Grindelwald or Lauterbrunnen), would love to ride the Golden Pass line and perhaps enjoy some fresh Gruyeres cheese and Bern is a possibility.

Entry into Italy through Como Wednesday night or Thursday morning. Spend Thursday touring the Como area and the other nearby lakes. Venice on Friday. Florence on Saturday. Debating Rome on Sunday or giving the rest of the places a bit more time.

What we want to see... a variety of things, shopping, beautiful natural views, gorgeous buildings (both old and new! Tadao Ando in Venice, LeCorbusier in Switzerland, etc.) most importantly, the famous foods of the regions!

Any advice to steer us away from a crazy mad race from train station to train station and meal to meal while barely being able to snap a few shots of a few sites in between would be truly greatly appreciated!

And I almost forgot... budget! As reasonably affordable as possible while still allowing to enjoy the things (food) we want. We intend to stay in hostels most of the time.
