I am a first time traveler to Switzerland - traveling from Mumbai (India) between 12th and 19th May with my husband. I am planning to buy and 8 day saver pass with free 1st class upgrade option. I have been reading a lot about seat reservation and am not sure if it applies to my itinerary.
I will reach Zurich airport on day 1 and take the train to Lucerne - stay there for 3 days (covering Titlis, Pilatus, local sighthseeing etc.).
On day 4, I travel from Lucerne to Lugano for another 3 days and wish to take the lake cruise, light hiking, Bellaggio/Menaggio, parks etc. Any suggestions on sightseeing options in Lugano are welcome.
Day 7 back to Zurich for a day and day 8 departure to Mumbai.
1. Given my itinerary above, I wish to understand if I need to reserve seats on any of the train routes I plan to take (including excursion from Lucerne to Titlis).
2. How do I buy the pass to Titlis online? Can I buy it in conjunction with my swiss pass? Do I save money by doing so?
3. Any sightseeing suggestions in Lucerne and Lugano? I want a relaxed holiday. Have decided on Titlis excursion so far. Everything else need to be planned.
