Hi. First time posting and VERY new to travel. I live in the US (Midwest) and am running the Jungfrau marathon in Switzerland on 9/10. I'll be traveling with my two older teen children and meeting some adult friends. My experience with overseas traveling is limited to Windsor/London about 20 years ago.
Top of mind is setting an itinerary. We're thinking of spending 7 or so days. I'm not sure what to expect as far as costs but would like to keep things somewhat in check. I'm sure that doesn't help but just trying to pass my mindset. We don't have to stay at hostels but not 5 star either. Maybe we go VRBO.
Was originally thinking of hitting Switzerland for a few days and then another area like Italy (e.g. Florence?) or Spain but I'm worried the travel in between might be too long. What do you think? What about arriving in one airport but flying out of another? Best place to find airfares and places to stay? Direction is appreciated! Thank you - Brian
