Well, it depends on your plans in each of those cities whether a Eurail Select Pass is the best choice. If you stay within the cities of Paris, Venice and Rome, a Eurail pass won't be helpful as you won't be traveling much, and urban transport like buses and trams are not included. Point to point tickets would likely be cheaper, plus a pass for Switzerland as I'm sure you will travel around there. You can use the Eurail Pass just on your longer transfer days, but be sure to compare prices as point to point tickets can be quite cheap if you book well in advance, and unlike Eurail passes they include seat reservations.
If those cities are just your base and you plan to travel a lot, Eurail is a good option. You'll have to do the math based on your detailed itinerary.
A Swiss Pass is for Swiss residents only, but the Swiss Travel Pass is certainly an option.
If you have more questions about picking a pass, please post more details in a new thread and we'll discuss it there.
