Hi Switzerland experts
Arriving in Zurich early Sunday 1 Sep, 13 and departing Wednesday 4 September also early in morning, I am thoroughly confused about how much we can squeeze in.
I found a bus trip of two days that seems to see a tiny bit of everything going from Zurich to Geneva but only leaves on Monday morning - meaning we would need to catch a train back from Geneva to Zurich on Tuesday evening to catch our plane on Wed morning. Is this possible? Enjoyable?
There are lots of day trips out of Zurich but how to decide which ones?
Obviously it is all personal choice - but how do we experience the essence of Switzerland? Having no knowledge of Switzerland I would love a bit of guidance. We want to see alps and scenery but not necessarily slide down "fun lifts". We are a bit the wrong side of 60 so don't want to go hiking, just seeing. We love trains but are not very savvy with travel and finding our way independently.
Thanks for any tips - I know I am asking a lot.
