Would you be willing to check our itinerary?My husband and I are traveling with our 2 children, 17 and 19. Our main objective is to spend time together relaxing. Also, we are not planning to purchase a rail pass. We would like to combine train and car travel. Not sure which portions of the itinerary below would be best by train versus by car--would love your thoughts on that.
6/10: Mother/son Arrive Milan from Los Angeles- overnight in Milan
6/11: Father/daughter Arrive Milan from Copenhagen - meet at airport or central train station. Bus or train to Lugano.
6/11-6/14: 3 nights in Lugano
6/14: Drive or train to hotel in flüeli-ranft (20 minutes from Luzern--Do you think that is too far away? We prefer a country setting.). 3 nights: old town, Mt. Pilatus w/luge ride, etc.
6/17: Drive to Bern--stopping at scenic towns along way such as Brienz--avoid highways.
Spend 2 nights in Bern- try to see Murten and Avenches by car.
6/19: Daughter: Train or bus from Bern to Zurich Airport- fly to NYC
Other 3: spend another night in Bern (see Murten and Avenches?) or drive or train to Lausanne
6/20: Lausanne- old town
6/21: Montreux: Chateau de Chillon
6/22: Fly Geneva to London
This itinerary doesn't include time for Schilthorn or Jungfrauhoch--wondering if we will regret not summiting? I guess it depends on the weather.
Danke & Merci & Grazie for any advice! We just starting planning this trip yesterday, and we know we don't have much time to finalize everything.
