We recently booked a trip to Switzerland for 5 days, 4 nights towards the end of this month. 2 nights out of the 4, we're staying in the Lugano area. The other 2 nights we planned on staying in Zurich but have since been told to look into more scenic places to stay by friends who have visited ( mainly ski resort areas). Our schedule looks something like this:-
Wed. Early AM - arrive @ Zurich Airport
Wed. - ____________
Thurs. - ___________
Thurs. Night - Arrive in Lugano
Fri. - Lugano
Sat. Early AM - Leave Lugano
Sat. - _____________ (could spend day in Zurich or somewhere on route to Zurich from Lugano)
Sat. Night- Arrive in Zurich
Sunday Early AM - Head home
We're a young 30s couple with a 10 month old baby ( non smoking and baby friendly areas are very important.) We are first timers to Switzerland and avid photographers. We wouldnt mind doing the cable cars if the baby is allowed. The Lugano portion of the trip is set and cannot changed too much.
I'd love to hear as many suggestions. The trains seem pretty easy but we're rather not have the little guy on a train for 3+ hours.
