Hello, I am planning to visit the Alps this winter. I will be in Verbier, Switzerland for Christmas and Salzburg, Austria for New Years, leaving 5 days or so to travel in the region. I have been to Zermatt, but haven't seen much else in the French, Italian, Swiss or Austrian Alps region. Does anyone have any recommendations that would 1) be possible only by train, 2) showcase some interesting scenery, 3) perhaps involve Italy or France, and 4) be open at this time of year? I love good food and wine, small towns and large cities are equally interesting. Skiing is not a requirement, as I will have skied in Verbier.
Thanks in advance for your help!
