Hello would really appreciate some help as I'm travelling for the first time to Switzerland in August with my 2 daughters (ages 16 & 13) and I'm trying to work out the cheapest train travel and route.
provisional itinerary is :-
Zurich to Lucerne for 2 nights
lucern to Interlaken for 2 nights
Interlaken to Lugano for 2 nights
we only have one week as we are then taking a cruise from Venice which is why our final Swiss city is Lugano. Is this itinerary possible or have I mixed up the route...?
is it better to purchase the swiss travel pass or is the 50% discount card more economical. Or do we get both?. A little confused as you can see. I understand that my 13 year old can travel free but does my 16 year old have to pay full fare?
Also is the travel pass valid upto Lugano?
Is there a possibility of paying something like an upgrade for the final journey from Lugano to Venice.
Would appreciate any suggestions or advice regarding above.
