Switzerland and Piedmont, Italy itinerary suggestions

Jump to last reply

Well, here we go again: husband says on short notice, "going to conference in (European destination), wanna go?" And I must scramble to make reservations, etc.! Now I'm not complaining, I'm just getting nervous. Airfare locked in - Arriving Zurich, departing Milan.

He will be at a conference in Lucerne first part of July. Got a nice hotel (on business) for the conference in Lucerne. Once we are on our own dime, we usually like to stay in simpler places (i.e. less expensive). The original plan was to spend 6 days at the conference, and the remainder of our two weeks in the Berner Oberland and possibly exploring Switzerland. Then we said, what the heck, we have always wanted to go to Torino, Italy because this is where my husband's family is from. We have been elsewhere in Italy but never the Piedmont area. And we decided to extend our trip from the original 2 weeks in Switzerland to 3 weeks and include Piedmont, Italy!

We love the Berner Oberland area and stayed at the hotel Bellevue Crystal in Murren last time. it's booked so reserving Hotel Edelweiss in Wengen for 4 days (could stay more).

From there I have.... NOTHING. Should we stay somewhere else in Switzerland before heading to Italy (already been to Lugano)? or just head straight to Torino and spend our time around there? I really don't know what to expect from the Piedmont area. Would like to spend some time in Torino. Staying in Asti or Alba is appealing although we would rather see beautiful scenery than do a lot of wine tasting, although we wouldn't pass it up!

We are heading to the bookstore this morning to see what we can find in the way of travel books but any direction you can give me would be very appreciated. If you can point me towards trip reports, I would love to read some. If you have some websites you like, love to look at those, too.

About us: in our 60's, fit, love art, hiking, good food and wine, relaxing!

Thanks so much! I didnt know how to tag this so didn't select any. Mistake?
