Suggestion for trip to Switzerland, Greece and Italy

Hello All,

My wife and i are planning to travel to the Switzerland, Greece and Italy with our 3 years old son in mid February 2018 for max of 10 days. We will be travelling from Mumbai (India) and then continue flying to Washington DC (USA) after this trip. We would like to get some suggestion in terms of:
1) What possible combination of places should we consider which can be covered in 10 days with our son?
2) Not sure if covering Swiss, Greece and Italy are all possible in 10 days. If not what should we chop from these 3?
3) Any specific places within possible combination between Swiss, Greece and Italy that are must see?

FYI - We are also celebrating our wedding anniversary during this time and would like to have suggestions on where this special place can be for our anniversary celebration

Yes, 3 countries in 10 days is 'too much.' Geographically, the outlier would be Greece.
Switzerland will be cold, and snowy at higher altitudes...maybe something you wish to experience?

Switzerland say 3-4 days
Italy 6-7 days

fly into Zurich out of Rome or Venice or wherever.

Fly into Zurich and head by train right for the hills around Interlaken -stay in a dreamy mountain village like Grindelwald and be eyeball to eyeball with glacier-girdled soaring Alps- tiny toylike trains and thrilling aerial gondolas going off in all directions:

Take Europe's fantastic trains to Venice, Italy - a great place to celebration wedding anniversary! One of the world's most surrealistically gorgeous cities

Take train to Rome - see some of the most famous sights in the world - the Colosseum and Vatican and Rome itself!

1-Land in Zurich- train via Interlaken to Grindelwald
2-3-4 Grindelwald
5- Train Grindelwald via Interlaken and Milan to Venice
6- Venice
7- Rome
8- Rome (Possible day trip say to Pompeii)
9- Rome
10- Rome- fly home from there.

For 10 days, consider part of Switzerland or part of Greece or part of Italy. Please consult some guidebooks to decide what most suits your interests and timeframe.

Hello, I was 5 day in Greece on Thassos island and 5 days in Rome italy.

On Thassos the food is very good and cheaper than the Roma.

To see more about this island https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUxD93N2_xc&t=3s

When I was in Rome I visited:
1. Phanteon very nice and free entrance
2. Colosseum and roman forum ( advise you to buy tickets online)
3. Vatican City
4. Trevi fountain (free)
5. Mouth of truth (free)

I also made a short movie with it I also made a short movie with it
