Hi, all. My wife and I are going to a wedding in Como in July, and want to spend a few days afterwards in Switzerland. We can leave Como on Thursday morning (7/25) and fly back out of Milan on Monday morning (7/29). I've done a bunch of research and read through a ton of threads on here, but I still feel pretty overwhelmed about what to do/where to start. Can you help me answer a few questions?
-Our main goal is to eat/drink/relax. We're not looking for serious hikes or anything like that. Between Milan and, say, Interlaken, which towns/cities should top our list?
-I'm thinking our "longest" trip in Switzerland should be that first morning, so that we then work our way back towards Milan during the weekend. Does Milan to Interlaken/Grindelwald on the first day make sense? Should we adopt a home base in one of those towns, and then do day excursions from there?
-We'd originally planned to rent a car, but reading this forum has made me think we should do it all by train. Is that our best bet? What kind of pass should we purchase? Do we need something extra ticket/pass to get us from Milan to the Swiss border on Thursday, and from the Swiss border back to Milan on Monday morning?
Thanks so much for any advice. I only discovered this forum a few days ago, but I've plowed through it. This seems like a great community, and I know we're in great hands.
