Switzerland & Croatia with a toddler in August

Jump to last reply

Hi, we are in the beginning stages of planning a 2 week trip to Switzerland & Croatia with our daughter who will be almost 2 in August. We are looking for a scenic and relaxing vacation with lots of good food. In Switzerland, I'm thinking we fly into Zurich from NYC and drive or cab to Lucerne and spend 3 days there. From there, we could go to Geneva or any other location that is highly recommended by this forum. After spending one week in Switzerland, we would like to go to Croatia, either Dubrovnik or Split, or both and spend another week before returning home.

Our budget would be to spend approximately $450/night for hotels in Switzerland and hopefully less in Croatia. Is that reasonable? I know S is so expensive!

Is renting a car a must in Croatia for proper sightseeing or can we get away with taking taxis and mostly hanging out at a resort or in the village/city/downtown and walk to restaurants and beaches, etc?

Any suggestions to help kickstart an itinerary would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
