I am planning a road trip from northern Italy (Lake Como) to Interlaken between mid and end of May (probably around May 20) next year. Which route do you think I should take? Option #1 - take A2 (Gotthard pass along the way) all the way to Lake Lucerne and then take A8 to Interlaken, Option #2 - A2 (Gotthard pass along the way) and to 19 (Furka and Grimsel passes along the way) and 6 to Interlaken, Option #3 - A1 (Gotthard along the way) and to 11 (Susten pass along the way) and to 6 to Interlaken. Considering the time of the year, the only pass which may be open would be Gotthard pass. I think all other passes will be closed at that time of the year. If I would have to bypass all the passes due to closure, which route do you think I should take, taking the road condition, travel time, and sceneries into account? If the passes are closed, there are always car trains onto which I can board my car? I will be travelling with my wife and two old parents (in their late 70s). Appreciate your input and wish you all the best.
