I have planned this trip to Switzerland and the Italian dolomites and would love some help with Switzerland's train (mass transit) in getting to these locations (any help on what is the best way or prettiest way would be appreciated). I am looking to make my travel less stressful. I booked a 15 day Swiss rail pass starting August 21.
I plan to Fly into Zurich, spend 2 nights in Lucerne travel to Murren 3 nights, on to Thun 2 nights, then travel to Montreux 2 nights from there travel to Zermatt for 1 night. Take the Glacier express from Zermatt to Chur spend 1 night. Take the Bernina Express from Chur to Tirano and on a buss to Lugano. Spend 2 nights in Lugano before going to Lake Como and renting a car.
Please can you tell me if this is to ambitious of a schedule for someone who has never been there before? I was thinking of skipping Thun and staying more time in Murren but I didn't know if I could get to Montreux from Murren in one day. Any help would be appreciated. Thank You for your help.
We are planning to spend 13 days in Switzerland and 11 days in the Dolomites (2 Corvara, 5 Cortina D’Ampezzo and 2 in Conegliano) before leaving out of Venice.
Thank you all for the great comments.
After reading them all, we updated our itinerary to 2 nights in Lucerne, 4 nights in Murren, 2 nights in Zermatt taking the glacier express to St Moritz/ Upper Engadine area for 3 nights before jumping on the Bernina express to Tirano. Then onto Lake Como for 3 nights Corvara for 3 nights and Cortina D’Ampezzo for 5 nights (Dolomites), then 2 nights in Conegliano before leaving out of Venice.
