I have been reading the My Swiss Alps for some time and I find it a wonderful resource in planning my trip to Switzerland.We are two seniors and we like to travel.We will be in Switzerland for 8 days .
Day 1. We will be flying from India to Zurich.We have purchased an 8 day Swiss travel pass and will start using it on the next day.As we may be a bit tired we may take it easy the first day.
Day 2. The next day we will go to Mt Rigi or MtTitlis and the lake cruise in the evening.
Day 3&4. Check out from the hotel and leave for Fluellen by boat .Take the Wilhelm Tel express and spend two nights in Lugano.Visit. Monte Bre. or Monte San Salvatore and go on a lake cruise the next day. We were not able to get seat reservations from India anyway it may be good thing and give us some flexibility.We may visit Bellinzola if we have the time
Day 5&6 We have reservations by bus to Tirano and the Bernina Express and will spend two nights in St Moritz. Here we will go by cable car to Diavolleza... Pontresina some scenic places in the vicinity.The train rides will be highlights of our trip but we also like to walk but not more than one hour at a stretch.I am fond of flowers and would like to see nice gardens and beautiful scenery.
Day7&8 Travel by Glacier express to Zermatt where we stay for two nights.We will take the train to Gonergrat. On the eight day we travel from Zermatt to Zurich.,our flight leaves for London at 5pm so we have a day of travel.
Please let me know if I can fit in more activities
