Hi, first-timer to Europe. Family of 2 adults and 2 kids (very young, 7 yrs and 9 yrs). Will be in London on 11 Mar. Thinking of taking a trip as follows :
a) 11 Mar - evening flight from London. Will land in Zurich at 11pm. Overnight in Zurich.
b) 12 Mar - spend few hours on city tour of Zurich iin morning. What would be the touristic sightts I should not miss here?
Then taking of travelling to Lucerne in mid-afternoon. Tour around Lucerene city. Overnight in Lucerne.
c) 13 Mar - thinking of going to Pilatus or would there be something nearer? Then travel by train to Paris. Overnight in Paris.
d) 14 Mar - 15 Mar - Paris.
Do you think the above is doable (esp. with young kids in tow?)? Have the following aims :
a) Beautiful sights of snow-covered mountains (if in mar, there still is) / lakes / countryside
b) chocolate factory - if there is one nearby.
The above is just my initial planning but if you think the cities in Switzerland i'm thinking of going to does not fit my objectives and not that suitable for the young kids, hope to hear more from you.
