Will you be jet-lagged?
If so, your plan is ambitious.
<<"We plan on flying into Milan, renting a car and driving to Lucerne our
first day. With stops in Lugano and Brunnen. Our trip is tentatively set
for mid May 2018. From Lucerne we plan day trips by either Rail or car.
We would also like to do a scenic railway excursion.">>
The Gotthard pass route is very scenic. More so by train than by car, as long as you do not use the new "basis tunnel." The inside of the tunnel is not very scenic.
Why not take the train to Luzern on your fist day?
