I wish it were a longer stay but I will only be in this wonderful city for 1 day. What would be the best way for my husband and I to spend the day? Also, we will be staying at the Hilton, going on a viking river cruise. Any suggestions on transportation from Hilton to river would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
We are 3 women freinds meeting after 7 years apart. Arrive sunday mid-morning by train and leave monday afternoon. On a budget for hotel and don't like hughe business like hotels but would like breakfast on Monday. Spa life makes talking and sharing hard so that's out. Brunch in a lovely Restaurant on Sunday is a must. With nice weather the Park Civico or Mont Bre? Boat ride? Any Museums open on Sunday? We are all different when it comes to sport levels so hiking is out. Shopping on Monday what else?
Any suggestions on hotels, activities etc?

We have three nights in Lugano in mid-May. I had planned two days of walks and maybe a little sailing, but then noticed the William Tell Express. Would it be worth it to spend one day doing the WT as a round trip - or are the views in Lugano somewhat representative of the rest of the trip? We will be coming from Milan.
Any extra comments or Lugano tips welcome. ps. we are not nightclubbers.

Hello, I was wondering if there's anyone out there that has stayed at the monastery in Mustair. I know they offer 9 rooms as guesthouse but I don't know much else. I'd like to know the following:
1) what is the room rate per day, are meals included. If not, how far is it from the monastery to get food? Are there grocery stores nearby, if so are they open till late to get dinner?
2) what are the rooms like? Is there a bathroom (toilet and shower) in each of the rooms or are they shared? If so, how many toilets/shower facilities are there?
3) what was is it like staying at the guesthouse? ie: noise level (can you hear the other person clear their throat in the other room), security (do each of the rooms have individual locks that are secure), is it OK to go up to nuns and chat with them and do they join you for meals etc?
4) is it a family oriented environment or would you recommend it for single travelers, especially females?
5) in what form do you make payments? Swiss Francs, Euro, do they accept credit cards or cash only? Do you have to pay everything up front or down payment? What is the maximum length of stay that is allowed per visit?
If there's any other tid bits of info that I haven't covered here, I'd like to hear them as well. I know that it may be best to ask the guesthouse directly, but from the official website that I have found, they don't seem to speak English that well. Also, I'd much rather get a first hand account so I know what it's really like. Thank you for any help on this in advance.
I will be travelling to Interlaken on the last week of May. I would like to travel up to Mt Jungfrau. What kind of clothes and shoes do I need to wear at this time of the year?
Will the plateau still be slippery to walk on?
I have always want to visit Switzerland. If we (me and my husband) have approximately 18 days to spare in June for a trip there, and the must go places are Zurich, Geneva and the Interlaken (the only places I have heard of ), and want to add a neighbouring country to visit, should we go to France or Germany? Which cities should we fly in and out and which cities/town to see along the route. We plan to use train as our means of transportation.
Any suggestion helps so I can start googling places and make plans :)
Thank you very much in advance :)
