Very last minute trip to Switzerland/Lake Como/Venice

Jump to last reply

We're a middle aged couple, and we'll be flying into Zurich and out of Venice in late Sept/early October. Yikes! We've already booked our last four nights in Venice, where we've been before. We're not hikers but we like to walk. We do like museums, but the primary purpose of this trip is the scenery. However, we no longer make getting to peak of the highest available mountain a priority. It's usually fogged over up there anyway. ;-)

We were thinking of spending 3 nights in Lucerne, then probably a night in Chur to catch the Bernina Express, then a night somewhere along the way before heading to Lake Como for 3 nights, then on to Venice.

OR we could spend 3 nights in Lucerne, then head directly to the Lake Como area for 3/4 nights, Milan 1/2 nights, and on to Venice.

Given the time of year, which would you choose? Or do you have another suggestion of how to structure this trip?
