I'd love a recommendation as to whether it is worth us taking the Gotthard Panorama Express train.
My family of 2 adults and 2 children (age 13 and 11) will be traveling by train 5 hours from the Dolomites in Italy to Lugano. We then have 2 nights in Lugano, before traveling to Lucerne for a night, then onto Murren for a few nights, then Zermatt.
Since we have a lot of train travel already, I am wondering whether it is worth us taking the Gotthard Panorama Express train/boat from Lugano to Lucerne, which takes just over 5 hours, or whether we are better off catching the direct 2 hour train to Lucerne. This way we would have more time to explore Lucerne, and could do a short boat ride on Lake Lugano and/or Lake Lucerne.
I'd love your opinion please. Is the Gotthard Panorama Express too good to be missed?
