Hello all. I am a newbie to this forum so hopefully my questions make sense.
Firstly, I would like to know how long prior to using a Swiss Pass for the first time I can purchase it? I seem to remember something about six months but couldn't find any supporting info.
Secondly, on the 8th day of our 8-day pass, we plan to travel from Brienz to Cinque Terre via Milano.
I have found one recommended route that suggests: Brienz --> Interlaken Ost --> Spiez --> Milano Centrale.
1. Is this the quickest route or are there better ways to get to Milan?
2. Assuming this is the best route, will the Swiss Pass cover us only to Spiez? Do we need to book a train from Spiez to Milano through TrenItalia?
Any help, suggestions or recommendations gratefully accepted.
Thank you in advance and best regards, Steve
