Sorry to hijack this post, I have a question on the train journey from Bern to Milan too.
I just bought Swiss Travel Pass from raileurope.com, thanks to myswissalps.com for the promo info ;)
I intend to travel from Bern to Milan on 01Oct15, taking the train at 14:07. It has one stopover at Brig to switch train to EuroCity (EC) to go towards Milan. One of the intermediate stops for this leg of the journey is Domodossola.
1. Is seat reservation mandatory for the EC train?
2. From sbb.ch, the price quoted is 25 CHF (inclusive of Swiss Travel Pass) for Brig to Milan.
However, I found out that at trenitalia.com, the price quoted from Domodossola to Milan is 19 EUR.
Hence, can I just reserve seat from Domodossola to Milan, and not from Brig to Milan? This is since my Swiss Travel Pass covered until Domodossola.
Will I still be able to board the train from Brig using my Swiss Travel Pass without any seat reservation?
3. If so, where do I sit for the Brig to Domodossola train journery? Can I sit on the reserved seat that I have already booked from Domodossola to Milan?
Thank you in advance.
