I found this website and the suggestions very useful. Thanks !
We (my wife and myself) will be landing in Paris on 9th, travel to Rome OR Venice on 12th (by flight) and then move northwards to Lugano and take train from Tirano to explore Swiss (Bernina Line and Glacier Express Line) from 16th on-wards. I plan to reach Montreaux by 22nd. I plan to stop for 2-3 nights at one or two places: once on the Bernina Line and once on Glacier Line and explore the local region by Bus/Train. We would like to take the cable cars where possible, go on short walks into country side or even a short hike (1-2 hrs) while we are in these places or go to a farm.
We prefer to stay in smaller towns and villages (reachable by public transport) to enjoy the scenic views of the valley and alps and know the culture a little better.
I saw this link here: www.myswissalps.com/up perengadine/hotels and this gives some idea.
Does anyone have suggestions for scenic places and hotels where we can stopover and explore?
I believe the weather may be cloudy and somewhat cold (for us Indians). How long will be the day (when will be the sunset during this period)? Are these days ok to for sightseeing?
