Italy and Switzerland in 2 weeks

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone,

I am planning a trip to Italy and Switzerland in Oct beginning for 2 weeks this year. I am going with my husband. We both are in late 20s.

In Italy, we would like to cover Rome, Florence and Venice. I understand 2 weeks for covering both the countries might seem a bit less but given the diversity between the places, we would like to cover both places together plus it would be economical :)

In Italy, we would like to visit the important places in the 3 cities mentioned above including Vatican city.

Could you please help us in planning how many days we should spend in each city? I am assuming around 8 days for Italy and another 4 for Switzerland. I am excluding the 2 days for travel. For travel between Italy and Switzerland, we are planning to travel during night to save a day :)

Also, during our 4 day stay at Switzerland we would like to visit only the most beautiful places there given the time constraints. What are the places we can consider for our 4 day stay in Switzerland?

Does the plan of doing both countries sound feasible given we are aiming to cover the important places in Italy and a few in Switzerland
