Trip set - what else do I need to do?

Jump to last reply

Have planned a month long trip to Italy and Switzerland for myself, Husband and 8 yr old daughter ... and for the second time am doing it all myself

so Itinerary looks like this :-

Fly to Zurich, train to Montreux
3 nights Montreux (arrive late afternoon on Day 1 so only 2 full days)
4 nights Wengen
3 nights Lucerne
3 nights Bellagio
6 nights Sondrio (with family - this is the purpose of the trip)
5 nights Florence
3 nights Perugia
4 nights Rome

Montreux - Grand Hotel Excelsior Du Lac
Wengen - Hitel Victoria Lauberhorn (got a great deal)
Lucerne - Hotel Des Balances
Bellagio - Hotel Du Lac
Sondrio - with family
Florence - apartment - Sleep in Italy
Perugia - Brufani Palance Hotel
Rome - Apartment- Sleep in Italy

Trains -
pass in Switzerland
Bellagio - Sondrio = regional
Sondrio - Milan = regional
Milan - Florence = booked
Florence - Perugia = regional
Perugia - Rome = regional
so have only actually booked 1 train ticket

I have booked tickets for the last supper in Milan ... and a transfer from Como train station to Bellagio as the ferry times do not work out.

But pretty much - thats it.

What else do I need to book before I go?
- Uffizi and Acadamia?
- Vatican?

Any other suggestions or tips?

Packing - we are going in September - how cold will it be in the Swiss Alps? can I hire a warm jacket etc to save me having to cart it all around for the next 4 weeks?
