Thread: 8 days Switzerland itineries and accomodation, any sggestion.

  1. #1

    Default 8 days Switzerland itineries and accomodation, any sggestion.

    I will be travelling up from Italy to switzerland, should have around 8-9 days in Switzerland, and next destination will be Amsterdam

    From Milan up to Switzerland, which is the nearest city i should visit first and which is the last city i should visit before going to Amsterdam.

    from what i see, i should start with Lagano(nearest to milan), and end at Zurich(nearest to Amsterdam), base on the map.

    Unless anyone here have better suggestion.



    Planning to visit this places:

    Lugano(1)
    Zermatt(2)
    Lausanne(1)
    Interlaken and Jungfrau (2)
    Berne (1)
    Lucerne (1)
    Zurich (1)

    is bern and zurich recommended to go?

    Zermatt and Interlaken is highly recommended. see if u can spend about 2 days there. get a swiss pass for bus and train transport.

    Lugano is a beautiful place with a lake sandwiched between two mountains (but I think 1 full day is more than enough). There is also a YHA which is very near the lake, if you don't mind YHA type of cheap accommodation.

    I was in Swiss last year.. Spent 3 days in zermatt n took the train up to gornergrat.. The views were superb.

    I bought my 8 day Swiss pass at dynasty travel. But quite expensive.

    Lucern was great, mt titlis was great, interlaken was alright but then I went up to jungfraujoch... Superb!

    swiss pass worked for me. then again it depends on how u intend to get from one place to the next.

    try to travel during non-peak hours. during their rush hour u have to contend with their commute since pple there will actually travel distances to get to work on the trains.

    Not very coldla. I was there mid June n d weather was around 10 - 15C I think. 1 day enough to walk around zermatt as it's small. There are loads if trails if u want to hike. I stayed in this hotel called hotel le mazot I think... Cant really remember d name. I booked it through online booking.
