My wife & I had such a great time in Switzerland last October, we decided we needed to go back for a bit longer this October. One of the things we didn't do during our 9 day trip last year was see the southern part of the country, so this year we'd like to visit Italy, even if only for a brief time. We'll be staying in Lucerne - loved using it as our base last time - and were thinking of a train to the border and then maybe a boat ride to the Italian shore towns. I'm not sure if we'll spend a night there or just make a long day of it and return to Lucerne.
Has anyone done a quick trip to the Italian border from Lucerne? Is a one day trip realistic? Any Italian towns you'd recommend (or not recommend)? We certainly enjoyed the boat trips we took on Lake Luzern last year, and we would like to incorporate that into our Italian adventure. Lake Maggiore looks quite interesting.
We are also planning a quick side trip to Liechtenstein from Zurich once we arrive, simply because we've never been there. Probably won't do much more than pop into the country for lunch and a bit of exploring.
Any advice or tips are welcome.
