We will be flying into Milan on 5/23 and spending one night in Varenna (Lake Como area) to enjoying a relaxing day/night and recover from jet lag. After that, is off to Switzerland for 9 days!!! My head has been swimming with details of train schedules and maps, trying to make the best use of our time. We'd appreciate feedback on this itinerary to help us make the most of our stay in Switzerland!
