We are family of four (2 adults + 2 kids - 15 & 11 years old) travelling from Paris to Zurich in Sept 2019. I have I have gone through quite a few threads on myswillalps and want to do the following but wanted your advise that if the following suggested:
1. 28th Sept: Arriving in Zurich and doing a early checking in hotel. Then going to Bern to see the old city and come back to Zurich in the evening. Not sure is it worth going to Bern or staying in Zurich and explore. If Bern is suggested then can you please suggest where to visit in Bern if we do a half day trip there and then have to come back to Zurich in the evening.
2. 29th Sept: Starting early around 7:45 a.m. Going to Mt. Titlis.Can you please confirm how much the tickets will cost for 4 (2 adults +2 kids) with a swiss pass.
Spent about three hours at the top Titlis. While coming down, get down the cable car to see Trubsee Lake. Then roaming Engelberg for a bit. On returning to Luzern. See the Lion Monument and Chapel Bridge. Come back to around Zurich 8:30 p.m. for Luzern. Is this possible or I will not have much time for Luzerne.
3. 30th Sept: Have two options . Either do a day trip to Mt. Riggi or Mt.Schilthorn via interlaken from Zurich. Which one is suggested.
4. 1st Oct : Early Check out and going to Milan via Lake Como.
I also want suggestion on what train ticket I should go for. Will a 4 day the Swiss rail pass(Includes Mt.Rigi + Mt.Shilthorn+50% off on Mt. Titlis) best option as kids are free with it or there is another better option avaiable for the trip
As I will be travelling from Paris to Zurich if I have a Swiss rail pass will it do me some savings as there is no need for a ticket from Paris to Zurich, because the leg from Basel SBB to Zurich is covered by the pass. So I'll book to Basel SBB from Paris and enjoy the rest of the trip for free with my pass. Not sure how to do the booking on the www.thetrainline.com with swiss pass as cannot find the option to book the journey to Zurich but booking only till Basel SBB.
Also traveling from Zurich to Milan buy ticket from Chiasso to Milan only as from Zurich to Chiasso will be covered by Swiss pass. Can you please suggest how to book this ticket as well on the www.thetrainline.com if possible.
Thanks in advance for all the suggestions.
