Milan to Mont Blanc

We want to travel from Milan to Frankfurt. Is it advisable to rent a car in Milan and travel via Chamonix Mont Blanc to Frankfurt. We have 4 days for this trip.

What is the best route to follow, or is it better to just get on the train and go straight to Frankfurt, perhaps spending some time in Zurich?

If you pick up a rental car in Italy and drop off in Germany, there will be a substantial one-way fee. Someone has to go to Germany and drive the car back to Italy.

Yes,I have checked the one way rental fees on the internet. Would just like to know if the route is worth while doing.

The route can be beautiful, with perfect weather, but why don't you travel by train? Instead of going via Mt. Blanc take the train north and stop at various places in Switzerland and Germany.

@ella052 Yes, we are weighing up our options. We have been to Switzerland before, and thought it would be nice to see something else. Some advise on the road trip would be great, but on the other hand, perhaps we can travel to Zurich by train, spend the night and then on wards to Germany by train. Never been to Germany before, not sure which stops to make there before we get to our destination. Open for any suggestions.
