My husband and I (in our early 50s) are arriving in Zurich on 3 September - we like to think of ourselves as active and moderately fit - can do 1-2 hour walks as long as not too steep, want to enjoy the areas we visit without rushing around, not interested in night life - rather nature and awesome scenery.... Have debated car or train and would like to do a bit of both so we can stop and take in the scenery.
Our itinerary is as follows:
Day 1 - Arrive Zurich (staying in old town)
Day 2 -Zurich sightseeing
Day 3 - Train to Rheinfalls/Stein am Rhein - O/N Stein am Rhein pick up car
Day 4 - Drive to Appenzell area
Day 5 - Appenzell
Day 6 - Drive to Luzern - drop off car
Day 7 - Luzern
Day 8 - Luzern
Day 9 - Train to Lauterbrunnen
Day 10 -Lauterbrunnen
Day 11 - Lauterbrunnen
Day 12 - Lauterbrunnen
Day 13 - Train to Zermatt
Day 14 - Zermatt
Day 15 - Zermatt
Day 16 - Train from Zermatt to Lugano changing at Andermatt (regular train not GE)
Day 17 - Lugano
Day 18 - Lugano
Day 19 - Lugano
Day 20- - Lake Como
Day 21 - Lake Como
Day 22 - Milan
Day 23 - Leave Milan
1) Have we made the best use of our time?
2) Is Lauterbrunnen the best base for that area
3) We have our travel books which we are reading of what to do in the areas we have chosen - but is there an absolute must see.
4) Any suggestions would be appreciated.
