if you like chocolate and cheese, go to Gruyeres for a day trip. You'll find there a cute medieval old town and a cheese factory (Maison Gruyere). You can try fondue there. Then go to Broc, where you'll find the chocolate factory of Cailler.
If you go to Maison Cailler on the weekend, make sure, to book your ticket in advance, so you do not have to wait for that much to get in.
On your other day you can visit the Jungfrau region: www.myswissalps.com/jungfrauregion/activities.
As you are going to Italy after that, have a look at this one too: www.myswissalps.com/traintickets/italy
I hope this helps,

In your other thread you also asked about the rail passes. First, you should know your itinerary, and then you can decide about the rail pass. Usually for a short stay in different regions, we recommend the Swiss Travel Pass. You can read about it here: www.myswissalps.com/swisstravelpass. Make sure to check the validity map on the validity label of that page.
If you are not familiar with the Swiss train system, please have a look at www.myswissalps.com/train/practical/howtotravel.
