Hello, I`m back …
Previous thread here. We have the dates now for our trip … Hotel reservations are done. So we will be at Milan, Italy at October 9th and plan to go to Swiss in the end of this day (a Sunday).
A) The idea is to stay at Bern and sleep there for 4 nights. After first night, we intend to stay the first day (Monday) at Bern city and if we have time also visit Tune and/or the Harder Kulm. DO you think is affordable to go all this points in only one day?
B) An alternative is to go to the Jungfraujoch or Jungfrau … maybe the Monch? But we do not know what is the best way to reach these points. Can you help?
On Tuesday the idea is to make a round trip to Zurich; going early in the morning and coming back at 6 or 7 PM. On Wednesday the same, but this time to Lucern.
Finally we go back to Milan, Italy on Thursday, October 13th; first train in the morning.
Besides which points will be the most interesting for us, we have to solve the transport issue.
Currently the idea is:
1) to buy the tickets from Milan to Bern at 18:23 hours at Trenitalia website, arriving at Bern 3 hours later. Currently the price is only EUR 39 per person. Pretty good huh?! I think we go buy and print these tickets at home.
2) it seems we have rights to pick up the tram at Bern in arrival night with our hotel reservations. I heard also they give trams tickets to be used into the city in the following days, if we have to …
3) For Zurich and Lucern and the trip back to Italy I was wondering to buy a Swiss Pass for 3 (consecutive) days, maybe four days if we go to Tunes or Harder Kulm.
C) I have a doubt about using the Swiss Pass for going back to Italy … I know I can use the pass until Domodossola, but how it works from there until my final destination? Should I take out of the train and pickup another one? Or just buy the complementation ticket and stay at the same train until my arrival?
Please help us to solve this puzzle! ;)

Hello, we are a group of 2 adult couples (thus 4 people in total) going from Milan, Italy to Bern to spend a day or two visiting the city and from there to Zurich and Lucern on a roundtrip of 1 day to these places. Finally going back to Milan.
what is the cheapest way to choose? A rail pass? Anyway to include Milan also or just inside Swiss?
Thanks for anyone who can help to clarify.
