My husband and I are arriving in Zurich in the morning of 14 May for a 20 day stay. I have been reading the forum for several months now and understand that we will not be in country at an ideal time to see the high alps and ski towns. I would appreciate any help with planning an itinerary that would still allow us to see the beauty and experience the flavors that are unique to Switzerland. We are interested in the people and culture, especilly wine and cheese production, and the consumption of both. We also enjoy castles and historical sites. Naturally, the scenery is a major consideration as well. We would enjoy some easy hikes, but nothing too rugged since we are flatlanders.
We are condidering 4 or 5 bases staying at B and B's in different regions, using public transportaion to see the areas and travel from one to another.
I would appreciate some advice on areas we should not miss and areas we should avoid due to our dates of travel.
Thank you to all of those who give their time and expertise to assist fellow travelers.
