We're planning to vacation in Switzerland next September (2014), and plan to drive through the country intead of trains.
I wanted to know, if anyone recommends any scenic/must-do drive routes starting from Geneva. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Geneva to Zermatt (stay for 2 nights)
Zermatt to Grindelwald (stay for 3 nights)
Grindelwald to Lucerne (stay for 2 nights)
Lucerne to Zurich (stay for 2 nights)
We were also interested in visiting the south part of Switzerland, such as Lucarno etc, somewhere in my itinerary. If too tight, I was thinking of skipping either Lucerne or Zurich.. Would that be worth it? Experiencing some mountain vacations in the early part of my vacation, I thought it would be nice to be drenched in the warm sun in Locarno.
I've never been to Switzerland and always wanted to. So this is my dream come true trip.
Any advice you could give me would be greatly appreciated!
