day trip to st moritz

We are planning a day trip from varenna into switzerland in June. Will our euros or american dollars be accepted in switzerland? How about our credit card? We're not sure what kind of money to take along since it's so close to italy.

Your Euros and dollars will not be accepted in general in Switzerland . Some of the supermarkets and large stores will accept Euros with a poor exchange rate. No problem with your credit cards which will convert the Swiss francs to $s. Best to have a relatively small amount of Swiss francs available for small purchases such as coffee and ice cream.

Close to Italy, but another country and the currency in Switzerland is the Swiss Franc.

Notify your credit card company that you would be visiting Switzerland and your credit card would be accepted.

Although some places would accept EUR, you may not be too happy with the exchange rate.

Prego susan v,

Tivano Tours in Varenna ran a day excursion from Varenna to St. Mortiz on Mondays last season.

Enjoy!

thanks so much. I've emailed them about a trip. I thought we had to leave from Menagio (sp?).

Prego susan v,

Hopefully Tivano Tours will run a 2013 tour from Varenna as well - If not, then check with Il Porticciolo Viaggi in Menaggio:

Perhaps also of interest (bus onward from Soglio to St. Moritz) - Menaggio to Solgio (day trip) without car... possible?:
