Switzerland and Italy trip - need help planning

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are looking to go to Italy and Switzerland this summer for a special trip. We have approximately 10-12 days. We can use frequent flier miles and fly in and out of Zurich and Milan. I would like to spend a few days in the mountains in Switzerland and then head to the Amalfi Coast (and/or Lake Como) for the bulk of the trip. We are looking for a few recommendations. Should we rent a car or can we do this trip by train? Do you have any suggestions in terms of towns, lodging, itinerary, etc.? As for budget, we are looking to stay somewhere quaint and clean that won't break the bank.
YOUR INPUT AND ADVICE IS VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!!
