We plan to drive from Zermatt (Tasch) to Bellagio this July and would appreciate best route for scenic views. We are experienced mountain drivers.

You will need to leave early as the scenic drive will be the long drive.

I would recommend Täsch - Visp - Brig - Gletsch - Furka Pass - Andermatt - Gotthard Pass - Airolo - motorway - Bellinzona - Lugano - Porlezza - Menaggio - Bellagio (last bit by ferry)

Thanks so much... Do you have an estimate of how long in terms of hours using this route will take?

Probably about 6.5 - 7 hours but that is only the driving time. As I have already said - start early or you won't have time to stop along the way and the 'scenic route' will be wasted.

However, you do have an alternative. If you get to Ulrichen and feel that time is getting on you can go direct to Airolo over the Nufenen Pass . Although, again, being close but missing the Furka pass would be a waste.
