Since you're traveling in 3 countries a Eurail pass would indeed be a good idea. The Jungfraujoch and Titlis are covered as well (i.e. you get a discount). You don't need a pass that covers Italy if you only travel from Milan to the Swiss border. A Eurail France-Switzerland Saver Pass
would be a logical choice. With such a pass, the TGV to Paris is free except for the seat reservations. Your cheapest option would be raileurope-world.com
, especially if you take advantage of these promo codes
for a discount on top of the listed prices. Please note that shipping takes about 8 days. An alternative is raileurope.com
The Swiss Flexi Pass is cheaper but it wouldn't include the trip to Paris. TGV fares vary with the travel day, booking date and popularity of the train, but I'm quite sure this option would turn out to be more expensive in total.
There is no need to book on the SBB website. Your pass covers everything. Discounted tickets can be purchased on the spot. The seat reservations for the trip to Paris can be ordered along with your pass.
Enjoy your stay!
