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?

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!

it might be cheaper to buy your swisspass there. got mine from the hostel i was staying in when i got to geneva, was given a discount.

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

hmm, will google on that. seems like 9days is not enough.

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.

that's actually on the day of first snow. it got up to -18C later. the hotel is abt a 20min walk from the train station.
if -18, it will be very worrying for my kids.

can i have the hotel name as reference.

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.
