Hello,

We are traveling in Switzerland this coming May and trying to figure if one of the Swiss rail passes would benefit us or should we just buy the train tickets, lifts and boat tickets as we travel. We are seniors over 65 and will be traveling together meaning buying 2 tickets at a time. We do plan on taking a trip either to Mt Pilatus, Mt Titlis or Mt Rigi in the Lucerne area not sure which one yet. We will also taking boat tours on Lake Lucerne and Lake Lugano while we are visiting those cities. With all of the Swiss Rail packages that are available it is somewhat confusing.

Here is our travel itinerary to get an idea of our plans,Gengenbach Germany to Lucerne (staying 3 nights) then onto Lugano (staying 3 nights) then head to Verona, Italy.

We are always open for suggestions and ideas of what to see and where to enjoy the regional foods, we also enjoy shopping. We are not expensive restaurant people, would prefer enjoying the local small restaurants and sampling the local cuisine.

Thanks to everyone that has suggestions and ideas.

Hello Lary1047,

Welcome to MySwissAlps! Basically you can choose between the 8-day Swiss Travel Pass and the Swiss Half Fare Card. The links lead you to all the details so you can see which one fits best. Also this page provides detailed help on how to calculate which one would work out cheaper in the end.

Suggestions for what to do in and around Lucerne, and hotel tips, can be found on myswissalps.com/lucerne.

Feel free to post back here if you have any questions left!
