Florence to Paris via Switzerland

The plan is to get to Paris from Florence by train. With just one day to spare in between, which is the easiest city for a day-stop in Switzerland?

Hi liverpoolcqs,

There are a number of Swiss towns along the route, so any of them would be good as a stop-over.

But here are my recommendations:

Montreux, if you want a bit of French ambiance and a lake with mountains in the distance. Montreux would be about five hours away from Paris.

Brig, if you want a sweet little town that's surrounded by mountains. Brig would be about seven hours from Paris.

You can check the train schedules at www.rail.ch, but be sure to use "Firenzi" instead of "Florence."

Good luck!
