I've been crunches the numbers and comparing fares till my head spins. I'm heading to Lucerne from Paris on April 1st and then heading to Milan on April 4th. What I had originally planned was booking a train from Paris to Lucerne, which connects in Basel and a train from Lucerne to Milan. So I will be in Lucerne for 3 nights. I'd like to take the boat to Vitznau and head up to Mt. Rigi and do some hiking. I would also like to head up to Mt. Pilatus if time permits.
Does it make sense for me to buy a Saver or Flexi pass? If I get either pass, will my train from Basel to Lucerne be fully covered? I've read that the pass also covers the roundtrip up to Mt. Rigi and gives me a discount up Pilatus. All local bus, boat, and train within Lucerne would also be covered correct? Would I get a discount for the train from Lucerne to Milan? Or would it just make more sense getting a half fare card?
