We're going to drive from Milan, Italy to Switzerland on 17th June and wish to see Matterhorn. I thought Zermatt would be the best place stay for a night before taking the cable car to the Kleines Materhorn. The first question is, can we drive to Zermatt? Many say you'll have to park your car as close as Tasch then take the train to Zermatt. But google map seemed just show us the way directly to Zermatt and didn't mention the train at all.
The second thing confused me is how far is it from Ayas, Italy to Zermatt? When searching Zermatt hotels online we were shown some hotels in Ayas and were told it's less than 20km to Zermatt. But on Google map it's some 150km!!! Is there anything wrong with Google map? or with my understanding?
Thank you very much in advance!
