After a long discussion, we opted for a stop over at Basel instead of an overnight sleeper train from Milano to Paris. So that we don’t have to be in the train for 10 hours, and we get to visit one more country. There were a couple of city we could pick as a stop over between Milano and Paris. We decided to head over to Basel (as i’ve never been there), and that we could visit either Zurich or Luzern.

This is the second time I visit the old town of Luzern. It’s absolutely a lovely Swiss town, just as what I remembered. We only have one full day to do a day trip from Basel, and we were struggling if we shold head to Luzern or Zurich. After a long discussion and some research, we decided to take the train from Basel to Luzern. We believed we could experience the whole “big city” thing in Paris. The ticket was quite expansive, if I remember correctly, it was like 20euro one way. (Train fare in Switzerland seems to be more costly than its neighbour’s). Once we steped outside the train station, we walked towards the lake and greeted by the Swiss swans.
