Hello. We will be visiting Italy and staying in Milan. We would love to spend a few days touring the beautiful Alps and I was hoping you could answer a few questions to help me plan this.
1. What is the best way to get from Milan to an area in Switzerland where we can board a train to visit the Alps?
2. If you can offer any suggestions of which places would be the most breathtaking/ beautiful to visit via train during the month of October (19-23) or "must see" areas I would greatly appreciate it. I would love to see the most beautiful area of mountains but was also hoping to stay in a little town surrounded by the mountains but that offers shopping, things to do etc. We would like to stay for 1 or 2 nights so hotel suggestions in that area? What are the best trains that would take us to those areas? For ex does the train that travels to St. Moritz provide the type of scenery we are are hoping for and does that town 'fit the bill' as far as things to do but convenient to the train
3. We would need to return to Milan on Oct 22. via train. Which train would we take? IS there then transportation to return us to Milan?
Again, given the time constraints, do you have any suggestions for 'must see' breathtaking beautiful areas? Thank you in advance for any help
