2 weeks in September Switz/Italy/France - what to do!?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are both active & adventuresome, in our early 40s. We prefer hiking, experiencing the culture of places, drinking wine/enjoying scenery and immersing ourselves in our surroundings over visiting museums and churches. Last year we took a two week trip to Switzerland: Luzern, Lauterbrunnen (we also visited Lbrunnen in '09) & Montreux. We loved hiking in all three areas. We enjoy staying in nice accommodations (hotels or apartments in the $200 or less per night price range.

This year we are interested in visiting more of Switzerland. I was considering the Bernina Express route. I'm also interested in a visit to N. Italy or France and am simply overwhelmed with the choices. I'd like to get a railpass and not have to deal with driving anywhere. The Jungfrau Marathon was going on last year when we were there and that was great to see, but I really feel like we should see more of Switzerland instead of visiting our favorite Lauterbrunnen for the 3rd year in a row!

Who has some good ideas & suggestions for us? I hope I provided sufficient information for everyone to give advice. Fodor's friends helped us plan the last 3 vacations so I am counting on a tremendous fourth!!
