Switzerland and Italy, tickets bought, need itinerary help

Jump to last reply

In the past few months I've asked about some other destinations, as possibilities, but this is real.

We land in Zurich on the morning of September 24, and leave from Venice on the morning of October 7, 2015.

On another thread, greg advised taking a train direct from Zurich airport to an Alpine region, avoiding waiting around for check-in after flying all night, especially if one travels light. We travel very light indeed, with a 20" rolling bag each. We both like this plan.

So we are thinking of going straight to the Berner Oberland, but don't know how long to stay.

We will spend our last 3 nights in Venice, specifically for the Biennale. We love the Biennale.

Right now I'm thinking of two possible bases in Switzerland and maybe one more in Italy.

We have 13 nights, 10 NOT counting Venice.

My goals in Switzerland are to see Alpine landscapes. I joke that I want the full Heidi experience, but it is kind of what I'm after. Quaint is good, super scenic is great; not looking for a city experience. I am not able to hike, but walking is OK.

In Italy, I'm thinking of Stresa to see the lake islands, but I'm open to most places between Switzerland and Venice, but probably not a mountain destination after Switzerland.

We don't drink, so wine destinations aren't an option. Food is important. I would say art too, but since the Biennale is already a part of the plan, we don't really need an art destination.

I have guidebooks and more on order.

I can narrow this down to more specific threads, but right now I'm looking for an itinerary.

Thoughts appreciated.
