Switzerland for Christmas 2015

Jump to last reply

Our family is going to Italy Dec. 26-Jan. 2 this year for an event. It occurred to me we should leave a few days before and head to Switzerland ( We have up to a week for this part of the trip). I have to say, I'd rather be visiting in warmer weather, but since we will be so close, I thought I'd take advantage. We love nature, charming towns and I heard they have nice Christmas markets. My hopes is to fly into Switzerland, take a train to Rome and from there fly back to USA. I just need to figure out plans for Switzerland.

-What website should I visit for special events during that time of year?
-Any recommendations for hotels, or apartments for a family of 5? 2 adults, 2 children and a teenager
-Should I station in one city and take day trips from there? If so, what city should it be?
-This would be our first time to Switzerland, should I consider skipping it and leave it for a better time of the year? Or is the cold still worth it? I don't mind the snow, it's the long walks in the weather below 40F that I don't like.

Any other suggestions are greatly appreciated! Switzerland has been a dream of mine to visit since I was in 4th grade when I had to write a paper about this country. Lol.
