I am trying to plan a short trip from Venice through Switzerland and back to Milan with my parents who are both quite elderly. So the emphasis is on scenic beauty rather than hiking or skiing etc.This is what I have figured out until now:
7 September: Venice to Verona and then Verona to Innsbruck: 3.5 hours. Possibly go to Garmisch and back or just stay in Innsbruck.
8 September: Innsbruck to Bludenz/Buchs/Bregenz via Arlberg pass for the scenictrain-ride: which is the best end-point ? From here, I think I would like toget to Lucerne (do I have to touch Zurich ? Is there a smart route ?)
9 September - 11 September (Swiss alps, make it to Milan by 11 night): Here I have many options, and this is where I really need advice. I have tried to break it up into 3 options, but perhaps even these are not the most sensible routes...
Option A) Engelberg-Mt. Titlis and Then Locarno-Lugano-Como-Milan or Locarno-Domodossloa-Milan ? Is this a different route than the fast train via the Gothard Pass ? More scenic ?
Option B)Lucerne to Zermatt and then Glacier express to St. Moritz on 10th and return to Milan on 11th via Bernina Express route ?
Option C)Interlaken-Jungfraujoch and then make it to Milan ? Possibly touch Zermatt as well ?
Thanks a lot for your help !!
