Switzerland/Italy in 12-14 days

Jump to last reply

I posted a question previously about whether to do a group tour w/ my daughter or not. We are traveling with my daughter's friend and her mother next summer as a high school graduation gift; no group tour, doing it on our own. We have decided on Switzerland and Italy. We will have 12-14 days max, due to my work, and are planning on flying into either Switzerland or Italy and leaving from the other. Just starting to do the research on where exactly we want to go visit in both countries and looking for opinions on what is absolutely a must see/what to skip. We do want to see some of the smaller, quaint towns along with Rome, Florence, etc. Cinque Terre sounds wonderful; would 18 yr old girls think so? They are both more into seeing the natural beauty, hiking, wandering, than shopping/nightlife. Is train travel easy between stops? What about staying in hostels rather than hotels? Any info/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
