Hi naveen! That looks like a fine itinerary for a 4 day stay. I think it's wise to choose one base (Lucerne) and make some day trips from there. You may want to add a boat trip on the lake and local sightseeing in Lucerne to day 3, and plan some bad weather alternatives for day 2 and 3 (consider the Traffic Museum and Glacier Garden in Lucerne for example). Instead of the Titlis, you may also want to visit the Pilatus, which is very close to Lucerne and doesn't require that much traveling time.

The Swiss timetable will further help you plan your trips.

Does that get you started?

Hi Naveen. Whether Titlis or Pilatus is 'better', is a matter of personal preference. Personally, I like the views from both moutains. I suggest that you browse the internet for pictures to get an idea of the views up there. You can make several short cruises (from half an hour up to several hours) on lake Lucerne. More information is available here.
