We are flying to Milan from Melbourne in mid march(9th to be exact). The plan is to mainly go around italy however I am very keen to spend some days in Switzerland. Plan is to stay 2 nights in Milan to do some sight seeing and recover from the long flight. I then want to goto Locerno as it seems like a beautiful town. Ideally I would want to drive and go through the Gothard Pass. In Locerno i am thinking of taking the golden pass to Montreux. Can I get some guidance as below please:
1. I would like to not spend more than 3 nights on all this as I want to spend some more of the trip in Italy. Is the 3 nights too ambitious?
2. For the trip from Milan to Locerno will the pass be open for car travel in March? And either way is train to Locerno better or car
3. Generally what weather can I expect keeping in mind we have a toddler with us
4. Is taking the golden pass a good idea with a toddler. If yes whats the best way to get from Montreux back to Milan or Florence.
We are quite flexible with our plans. Ultimately the idea is to spend 2-3 nights in Switzerland and try and do as much sightseeing as possible.
