Good day everyone, we are a family of 4 (couple age 42 + 2 boys 17 & 15 years old) planning to visit Switzerland from 17 - 28 Aug 14. It's our first time visiting Switzerland. We will be entering Switzerland from Lake Como, Italy and exit from Switzerland to Venice and flying back to Canada.
We planned to purchase a Swiss Pass + Peak Pass and have outlined our itinerary as follows,
Day 1 - Transfer from Lake Como to Locarno / Ascona, overnight Locarno/ Ascona
Day 2 - Sightseeing / excursion Locarno / Ticino region: overnight Locarno / Ascona
Day 3 - Scenic train Centovalli Valley via Domodossola (Italy) to Brig and with Glacier Express to Zermatt: overnight Zermatt
Day 4 - Morning sightseeing Zermatt; afternoon transfer to Montreux, overnight Montreux
Day 5 - Sightseeing / excursion Geneva, overnight Montreux
Day 6 - Scenic train Golden Pass to Interlaken, overnight Interlaken
Day 7 - Morning sightseeing Interlaken / Jungfrau region; afternoon Golden Pass scenic train to Lucerne, overnight Lucerne
Day 8 - Sightseeing / excursion Zurich and Basel, overnight Lucerne
Day 9 - Scenic train William Tell Express to Lugano; overnight Lugano
Day 10 - Going back to Lake Como, Italy
We have left 2 spare days so that we can insert any suggested tourist spot, event and other option.
We would like to know if the above itinerary doable and any extra transportation cost involved beside the Swiss pass + Peak Pass.
Any comments and suggestion are welcomed and we thank you very much in advance for your input. Cheers!
