Thanks Lucas and Alpenrose666.
Here is my itinerary. Does it makes sense or suggest changes?
I’ve also listed questions in the itinerary. Would be great if I could help with those.
Fly into Zurich
Train from Zurich to Luzern.
2 days in Luzern –
Day 1 - Do Mt. Pilatus
Question 0 – Would there be any time left after the Mt. Pilatus trip? If so, what could we do?
Day 2 - Mt. Rigi or Mt. Titlis
Question 1 - which one is better?
Question 2 - www.myswissalps.com/ri gi looked interesting with hike on Rigi (www.myswissalps.com/hi king/rigistaffelhohe-freibergen), however from the link, I couldn’t figure out how I cover Mt. Rigi and the hike with starting and ending point being Luzern. Would appreciate to get the detailed route.
Question 3 – Would we have time to do Lake Lucerne boat trip on either of the days?.
Day 3 – Train from Luzern to Grindelwald. Spend 3 days in exploring BO
Question 4 – how long is the train from Luzern to Grindelwald? Would there be any time left in the day to do anything else in Grindelwald or neighboring towns? If so, what can we do?
Day 4 - Do Jungfrau
Day 5 – Lake Brienz and an easy hike
Day 6 – An easy 1:30 hr hike Walking in the Lauterbrunnen valley: Lauterbrunnen to Stechelberg
and then go to Trummelbach falls
Question 5 - how to get to the Trummelbach falls after the hike?
Question 6 – Is there a glacier cave or grotto in BO that we can visit? Which day would that be in the itinerary?
Question 7 – Is there a chocolate factory in these two regions that we can visit?
Day 7 – Travel from Grindelwald to Lake Como, Italy
Day 8, 9 – Lake Como
Day 10 – Travel to Milan and fly out in the evening or next morning depending on flight schedule
I also have a set of travel related questions.
Q8 -What train do we take from Zurich to Luzern?
Q9 - What train from Luzern to Grindelwald? Is there an option for a scenic train?
Q10 - What train from Grindelwald to Lake Como? I see that Gotthard Panorama express goes from Luzern to Lugano. Shall I travel from Grindelwald to some intermediary station to hop onto Gotthard? Bernina doesn't seem to be in my path. or any other suggestion?
Q11 - Do I need to get a travel pass for both Switzerland and Italy or shall I buy EU multi-country pass to cover the two countries? Feel like Swiss Travel Pass might suit the need but Italy is not covered.
Thank you very much in advance.
