Arrive Zurich 24 Jun, train to Wengen. Round trip Mannlican lift 25th, round trip Lauterbrunnen 26th, leave by train to Locarno area 27th.

Locarno area 27th thru 30th. Train back track to Biasca 28th and Lake Lugano on 29th. 30th Leave for Florence Italy. What is best connection getting from Locarno area to Florence on 30th..eurorail, italian rail? Does pass provide discounts on either of these.

Later in July return from Italy to Zurich for flight back home.

What is best way to get to Zurich on return from Italy. Assume cheapest use travel pass once in Switzerland? Where is best connection in Switzerland to get to Zurich.

So I am lacking the skills in putting this all together to get the best pass to accomplish all of this. Thanks so much. REALLY appreciate ALL of your help !

Hi Fognorth,

A Swiss Half Fare Card offers 50% off all tickets within Switzerland. I think that would suit your plans. Alternatively you can look into the Swiss Travel Pass Flex if you prefer not to buy tickets for train and boat trips.

Discounted tickets can be purchased once in Switzerland. You need one to Chiasso (Italian border) on your way to Florence, and one from Chiasso to Zurich airport when you return. In advance, you need to arrange for regular tickets Chiasso to Florence and one from Florence back to Chiasso.

Here's where to purchase (you are in the US, right?):
