Switzerland itinerary help request

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are planning a July vacation of 10 nights in Switzerland and 4 nights in the Italian lakes. Flying into Zurich, returning from Milan. We're thinking of doing a combination of trains and driving in Switzerland but need advise on when to pick up the car and when to return it, certainly before Italy. So far, we’re thinking maybe a night in Zurich, a night or two in Lucerne, 3 nights in the Berner Oberland (where to base and how to include a day trip to Gimmelwald), maybe a night in Bern. Where else would be good for a few nights as we're heading to the Lake Como area? We've looked into Rick Steve's itineraries and some others. We'd consider a scenic train ride to make our way from Switzerland to the Lake Como region and looked at taking the Glacier Express or the Bernina Express or the Wilhelm Tell train, but we're indecisive on which makes for a better trip plan. We are more into walking than strenuous hikes, more into seeing sights outside than museums, more into clean and comfortable lodging than extravagant. We've been around Europe and have planned our trips but for some reason we're a little puzzled about this plan. Your help is appreciated.
