Zurich to Chur to St Moritz on Bernina Express (as per Man in Seat 61 suggestion) (overnight St Moritz) (7th Dec)
St Moritz to Tirano to Milan (2 nights)
Milan (day trip to Venice) - my Daughter wants to go here
Now this is where I'm not sure how to plan. I don't really want to spend 7-8 hours on a train at a time as my daughter will be bored.
I'd also like to visit Cortona. Other places I've been looking at are Siena, Lucca, possibly a day in Florence (I've been here before) and a day trip to Pisa (another daughter request - I'm not fussed - I've been before). I've looked at train & bus travel between these places using google map.
I'd really love to see those "typical" tuscany hills (like the wine area - even though I don't drink wine). The suggestions are to hire a car to do so. Driving on country roads does not really phase me except if it were perhaps snowy....I've also got to keep my wits about me with driving on the right hand side as we drive on the left. So I'd really rather not drive in busy places.
So from my four choices of towns what would be ideal location? I'd like to be able to walk around the town for dinner etc. it would be nice to stay in B & B. I did find one that is very reasonable at villadianella but I think this is not a good location for us???
We need to be back in Paris by 21st as we fly out at 7.50pm.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
