Hey there, my fiancé and I are in the process of planning a first trip to Switzerland + Italy and we are looking for some advice in regards to places to stay (in Switzerland) as well as some tips for transportation (getting down to Italy).
We'll fly into Zurich and our plan is for 8 nights total, 3-4 in Switzerland and the rest between Florence and Rome. We have two things planned for Switzerland, doing some activities around First from Grindelwald then visiting Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe. For visiting these two locations, where would be a good place to stay? I was originally thinking Interlaken, but starting to think otherwise (maybe closer?).
After that we plan on taking the train down to Florence for a few days then to Rome for one day where we will depart for home. Any tips as far as transportation goes? Such as booking in advance vs getting our tickets at the stations, or special passes? Also do you think this is a sufficient amount to time across 7 full days?
