We are planning to travel from Lugano to Zermatt by rail in late October 2014. Would like to enquire which is the best route (either most convenient or most scenic route) to take?
Option 1: Lugano - Locarno - Domodossia - Brig - Zermatt
Option 2: Lugano - Bellinzona - Goschenen - Brig - Zermatt
Option 1 goes through Italy. I understand the Swiss pass will cover the entire journey but I'm a little uncertain how it actually works. When we change trains inside Italy, do we simply show them the Swiss pass and board the train? Or do we need to get tickets for the Italian portion of the journey as well?
Option 2 remains entirely in Switzerland so the Swiss pass will cover all. When using the Swiss pass in Switzerland, is there any need to get tickets (apart from the panoramic rides)? Or we simply show the passes and board the trains?
Appreciate any advise
