Where in Italy? Where in Switzerland? Where in France? There isn't any single "best path." There are hundreds of options. It depends on your itinerary.

Dear Maj,

1. Do you mean a ferry? A cruise is a long trip on a large boat.
I don't think that there are ferries leaving from Athens (Piraeus) to Italy. You would have to leave from one of the other ports, such as Corfu.

Have you looked up "Greece Italy Ferry" at www.google.com?

2. www.trenitalia.com is the place to go for trains within and from Italy.
www.sbb.ch/en/home.html is the place for trains within and from Switzerland.
www.voyages-sncf.com is for trains in France.

3. You will have to do your own research on where to visit in France. After you have chosen one or two places we can help you plan what to do there.

4. It will help if you tell us when you are going, how long you lan to be in each place and your budget.

The overnight ferries leave from Patras which is about 3-4 hours from Athens.

You can't do the places you listed in 10 days unless you want to spend all your time on transport. In 10 days, you should only do Rome/Florence/Venice.

Davos city, oh boy are you in for a dissapointment. It's a smallish ski resort like hundreds of others. If there is no snow think grass, rocks, small streams and a bunch of hotels/houses.
