Venice to Lucerne

Jump to last reply

I don't know if this is crazy, but since I was in 4th grade, I've dreamed of some day visiting Switzerland. I will be in Italy for 13 days, and wanted to see if it's possible to squeeze Switzerland in from Venice for 3 days (This would include travel time).
Those 3 days would be during the last week of March. I would need to go from Venice to Switzerland and then back to Florence.

If possible, I heard Lucerne is good place to visit.
Given the few days, what would be my best option for transportation to and from Italy? Train or plane?

Is there time to visit another area besides Lucerne or take 1/2 day trip to Mt. Pilatus? If so, should I rent a car to get around? Been reading about the swisspass.
I will start with just these questions and appreciate all suggestions.
