Planning a trip to Europe late April-early June 2020:
Fly US to Rome--3 weeks in Italy--9 nights in Switzerland--2 nights in Germany--fly to US from Frankfurt
Notes: We are planning to travel by train but are not opposed to car rental if it makes more financial or logistic sense.
We could possibly add one more night in Switzerland if it makes a significant difference.
Lake Como (Lugano) to Lucerne for 4 nights
Lucerne to Bernese Oberland for 4 nights in either Lauterbrunnen or Wengen
Lauterbrunnen to Bern for 1 night
1. After reading about La Maison du Gruyere tour and the Maison Cailler tour, we would love to include that in our itinerary but need suggestions about how to do that.
2. Is the Gruyere area a feasible day trip from Bern if we added an additional night there?
3. Does the sequence above make sense or is there a better way to arrange our trip?
Thank you for any advice you are willing to share!
