I have been reading a lot of the forum replies and while very helpful I finally decided to try my own questions. My mother, 86 wants to do a trip to Switzerland, Italy and Spain. My brother & wife and my husband and I are flying with her to Geneva October 17th arrive the 18th....We plan a couple days there and then to Lucern on Oct.20th. We plan to use that as our base to see what we can see. Day trips to Interlaken(and whatever is suggested)........We then will travel by train from Lucern to Venice on October 24. Then we will travel to Rome and surrounding areas then fly to Barcelona, Spain November 3rd. I am looking at Rail passes and then what is good for Switzerland.
My first question is about rail passes that would be the best for travel in those countries but also for getting around in Switzerland?
Then what day trips do you suggest from Lucern that won't be too tiring for my mom? Scenic?
