Spending two days in rome. four days in Swiss. Need help in itinerary
We are reaching Geneva at 29 March 2011 afternoon and leaving Geneva on 5th April 2011. We are two families (four adult, four child, one infant). We want to Stay at night in Geneva and take morning flight to Rome and spend 30 March and 31 March in Rome and come back on 31 night to Geneva. After this we will spend rest of time in Switzerland. The idea is that our kids wants to play in Snow. And that is the basic agenda of coming to Swiss. We are not going to Ski or any other snow sport etc. Only idea is that kids should play in snow and adults should relax. We may also do bern or luzern or panaromic rail trip or something like that. Need help in suggesting an itinerary. I believe trip to Jungfrau is very expensive. I am not sure if there is any alternative. Will six day pass for Jungfrau be useful for us. Also which Swiss rail pass will be useful for me. I may drop Rome if i need more time in Swiss but that is my last option
You need to contact with an international tour operator. They give you better solution according to your requirements. I suggest you one best tour operator. I have already take Europe tour packages last year their services and prices are very cheap. Please contact to Paras Holidays, you also visits their website (<snip>😉 . Best of luck for your happy holiday.
I have been to Rome last year and it offers plenty to see. Two days are not enough to visit all its attraction. But you can visit some of them that seem you interesting. If you don't cut Rome from your itinerary then you can plan to go to some of the main attractions there like Colosseum, the Circus Maximus, the Roman Forum and Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Vatican City. You can also join a tour group to make most of your time. I would suggest you to stay in the city center to have easy access to various spots.
There are lot's of ski resorts close to Geneva, so you could stay in Geneva, and go out for daytrips, alternatively stay in a resort for a couple of days. Renting a car will probably be a good idea, to be able to see more. Scenery is stunning, if the weather is good. Ski resorts are usually centered around skiing, so after playing in the snow for a couple of hours there may not be much else to do (and it will be quite cold too). Your kids may enjoy a ski class though. I think you will probably find Rome to be of more interest, there are lot's of things to see in this beautiful city.
Before planning an Holiday, you need to contact any travel agency. They provide you good and best package according to your itinerary. Last year when i visited to Geneva then i book a package to <snip>, New Delhi, India. they provide me end to end solutions according to my requirement. you can also contact with them.
I hope the above post is not a marketing stunt by <snip>, New Delhi. Exactly this statement i have seen else where also.
Hi Pratham, reading the above answers about the travel agencies, it is not at all necessary to use a travel agency. Europe is very easy to travel in, and you can get all information and book almost everything over the internet, thus saving lot's of money. Have a nice time!

The best advise i can give you is to get a Swiss Pass. It covers all of your rail travel, lake boat travel, admission to tons of stuff and big discounts. Try <snip> for more information.
Zermatt is a great spot. They really work to keep tourists happy. It is a beautiful place.
