** In Search of A Quaint Historic Village in Switzerland Easy to Get to From Leno, Lake Como, Italy.**
Anyway, my wife and I are leaving for Milan tomorrow and from there we're off to a wedding in Leno at Lake Como. After that we have two more nights before we have to be back in Milan to catch a flight to NYC. We'd love to make it to Switzerland and ideally, a destination distinct from what we would have experienced in Como. Since we'll already be coming from Italy, we wanted to try to find some place more "Swiss." (We're quite open minded and love all types of travel but a quaint village with visible Medieval history and a castle would be the jackpot!) With all that in mind, we thought we'd look outside of Svizzera Italiana - the Italian region of Switzerland - and focus on the larger German section. We prefer to travel by rail and would like to keep the travel time under 3 or 4 hours. Any help would be hugely appreciated!
Thanks! (Vielen Dank!/Ciao!/Merci!)

P.S. We just want to say Thanks Rick Steves! My wife Lindsay and I are a couple of your biggest fans (can't wait for Europe - Season 9 this fall) and are looking forward to joining a tour with you or your crew sometime soon.
