Switzerland & Milan ?? 15 days... help with itinerary needed

Jump to last reply

I am in the very early planning stages of our annual fall trip to Europe. I've been to France 5x, Belgium 2x, Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Estonia... It's now time to venture south a bit, and Switzerland comes highly recommended, and is easy to fly in and out of from Toronto.

We (my sister and I) are 39 and 41, like to walk around and soak up the city we are in, take pictures of the sights, shop a bit and eat good local foods. We aren't huge museum fans, but enjoyed the ABBA museum greatly!

Initially, I am looking at flying into Zurich and out of either Geneva or Milan. We'll be there for 15 nights or so and will be traveling by trains only, not driving. I'd like to stay in smaller towns, like Zermatt, Lucerne.... Also, we'd like to make a side trip to Liechenstein, just to add another country to our list. I understand most say there is not much to see...

Here is initial idea:

Day 1: Land in Zurich
Day 2: Zurich
Day 3: Zurich, with day trip to Liechenstein
Day 4: Travel to ???
Day 5: somewhere in Switzerland
Day 6: somewhere in Switzerland
Day 7: somewhere in Switzerland
Day 8: somewhere in Switzerland
Day 9: somewhere in Switzerland
Day 10: somewhere in Switzerland
Day 11: somewhere in Switzerland
Day 12: somewhere in Switzerland
Day 13: travel to Milan
Day 14: Milan
Day 15: Milan
Day 16: fly to Toronto from Milan

Towns we'd like to stay in are Lucerne, Zermatt, St Moritz and Lugano, but we are also very flexible. We'd also like to do either the Glacier Express or the Bernina Express.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated. My last trip was amazing thanks to the suggestions I got here on the forums.
