I have 7-8 days to travel with my boyfriend (we are in our 20s/30s) and I was wondering if you could help me/give me advice with my itinerary! This will be late August.
Starting in Zurich is the only fixed part of the trip because I already have my trip there booked. (It will be the end of a business trip!)
I would really like to see the beautiful natural sites of Switzerland but also want to hit Italy quickly at the end because I LOVE Italian food!
Is this too rushed? Any order of things that should be switched? The reason I go in kind of a circular route in the beginning was because to get from interlaken to lugano (or milan) by train, it seemed like the train had to go through lucerne first.
zurich -> bern -> interlaken area/a village near there -> lucerne -> lugano -> milan
zurich (1 day)
-> zurich to bern - 56 min train
bern (1 night or just half day)
-> bern to interlaken - 50 min
interlaken (1-3 nights)
- visit or stay a village near interlaken (Murren, Lauterbrunnen, grindelwald OR Gimmelwald). go to mountain jungfraujoch. get to these villages via train or bus
-> interlaken to lucerne - 2 hrs
lucerne (1-2 nights)
-> lucerne to lugano (2.5 hrs)
lugano (swiss/italian city) - 1 night or just half day
-> lugano to milan (1.5 hrs)
