Zurich & Dolomites itinerary questions

Jump to last reply

Husband & I are in early stages (please go easy on me!) of planning a 2 (perhaps 2-1/2) week trip through Dolomites, probably late June, early July. My idea was to fly in and out of Zurich b/c we can get a non-stop flight. We would like to take the train either to Lugano or Milano as I hear the scenery is beautiful. (I know that the hiking is fantastic in Switzerland too, but have heard that it is more economical in Dolomites). From there, we would rent a car - would like to see Lake Como, Lake Garda and probably have a base in Ortisei to do some day hikes (or possibly a short hut to hut hike). I realize we'd have to get back to Zurich, perhaps an alternate, equally beautiful route? I understand that dropping rental car across border is expensive, so we'd drop car in Italy (Milano or Lugano?). Other questions - does this itinerary seem feasible and sane given our time? Any highlights in these areas that we shouldn't miss - we like hiking, eating (doesn't need to be fancy), walking around towns/people watching, short tours of cultural or gastronomic interest.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions and recommendations.
