My switzerland trip would be of 3 nights stay as follows:

Day 1: Arrival from milan (Italy) to Zurich at 18:00 hrs, night stay at zurich

Please suggest how should we plan our journey?

Hi Shaikh,

Buying some sort of rail pass would be cheaper and more convenient then buying point to point tickets for all your trips. You could use a 3-day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass for day 1 to 3. It includes free traveling from the border (Chiasso) to Zurich and also all other trains are free. Mount Titlis is reduced by 50% with the pass. On day 4 you get free traveling within Geneva if you book an hotel there. If you rather have 4 days of unlimited traveling, a 4-day Swiss Saver Pass suits your needs. Click the links for all pass details.

I would recommend Lucerne over Zurich for day 1 and 2, since you have limited time. Lucerne is closer to the mountains and it saves you moving hotels one time.

Have a great stay!

Thanks Annika for the information u provided.

Can you please tell me what is the actual difference between a Swiss Saver Flexi Pass and Swiss Saver Pass?

if buying a pass is suitable then what other advantages can we get using these passes? advantages like visiting some other places, mountains, museums, trains etc within these 3 days?

Also, the major attractions i would like to visit include:

1. Rheinfalls, for which I will be staying in Zurich at night.

2. Mount Titlis (how should i reach mount titlis from lucerne? the trains and tickets ?

3. Lake Geneva

To visit all above places, is it realy worth to buy a swiss pass or swiss flexi pass ?

Hi Shaikh,

If you click the pass links that Annika gave you, you will see exactly how the passes work, what's included, etc. A pass is most probably cheaper than buying separate tickets. But it depends on your final itinerary. Follow these instructions to know for sure.
