I may be jumping the gun a little because I don't officially have leave time yet, but, once thoughts are in motion I can't sit still!
I'm planning to take my parents to Italy in late May and am hoping to make the last 4 days of the trip in Switzerland. Most likely Grindelwald, and then a flight home from Zurich.
We would be coming from Venice and to minimize hassle we would take the train (3 people). Would driving the route be perhaps better? (IE places to stop along the way....). I've driven in the Alps before - my only concern might be closed passes in late May.
I think that having a car during the brief sojourn in Grindelwald would be a good idea. Not sure if Grindelwald is big enough to have a car rental counter at the train station or if another stop along the way would be better. Is a car even necessary for a 3-4 night stop there?
