Are there any WiFi hotspots in the Swiss Heartland? We are thinking about bringing a laptop.

Does anyone have recommendations for good guide books - especially those that detail good hikes and walks. Thanks, Alice

Untours published its own Swiss Hiking Guide which we found useful during our stay in the Swiss Heartland last fall. If you are going to Switzerland with Untours, you will receive a copy automatically.

My wife and I are thinking about a 2011 UnTour to Ticino and we'd appreciate any comments about the various apartments, one versus another. We loved Meiringen and are tempted to return BUT the thought of Italian food combined with Swiss efficiency makes Ticino appealing.

Last fall we stayed in what is now called Rocca #14. It was named Residenzia Motta then. Not sure why the name change. I just looked at the details and it is the same owners though. We loved our stay there! If you want a place that is in the center of the old town on a picturesque street, I would highly recommend this location. If you are looking for a place with a great view, this is not your choice, however. The walk to the train station was about 10 minutes. This part of town is pretty hilly so be sure you don't mind that. The grocery store is between this place and the train station, so very convenient.

We stayed in Bonalumi Upper in Locarno last month... it's an easy, flat, 10-minute walk from the train station, and it's got a beautiful, gorgeous view. There is an elevator in the building, so there are no steps involved. Check it out!

We are planning our 3rd Heartland untour and would like to expand our venture into Germany, Italy or France.... If we travel by the Swiss rail do we just need to pay a fee to enter the country?  Last time we were in the Heartland, we traveled until we arrived in Milan and had to pay... and it was not as much as it would have been if we bought tickets.

Leaving for Swiss Heartland 3 weeks and would like to know if anyone has a recommendation for swimming/kayaking/rafting.
