I wanted to rent a car in Lugano, and drive around for a few days in Swiss. One option is to go to Chur (following the path of Bernina Express), then to Appelzell, and then ending in Zurich.
1) To enjoy Lugano and Como area, does having a car really help? What surrounding areas would be nice to check out. I like small beautiful towns, mainly.
2) Does the car ride from Lugano to Chur, does the same justice as the Bernina Exp (in terms of views)?
Let me know if you have other/better suggestion of how to drive around in Switzerland (starting from Lugano and ending in Zurich).
