I am planning a visit to Lucerne, Mt. Tiltis & Geneva.
The 4 of us are travelling on a budget and want to see as much as possible in a very limited period of just 3-4 days.
We are having trouble figuring out what & how to book for our transportation.
Our rough itinerary is as follows:
18/03 - Travel from Paris to Lucerne arriving in the evening.
19/03 - Lucerne - Mt. Tiltis early in the morning, Planning to spend a whole day in Mt. Tiltis & returning to our hotel in Lucerne in the evening.
20/03 - Sight seeing in Lucerne & travel to Geneva mid-day (after hotel check out)
21/03 - Sight seeing in Geneva. Catch a 3pm flight out of Switzerland.
Our main concerns are:
- Are booking the train tickets online in advance necessary? Will it be cheaper? Will ticket availability be limited? Or is there no problem buying the tickets in person when we arrive there?
- Is train the best option from Lucerne to Geneva? and is advanced booking necessary?
Kindly advise.. All help is appreciated!
