Hi Analisha and welcome to MySwissAlps!

It will depend a little on how much train travel you plan to do other than getting from Lugano to Luzern (local German spelling), Interlaken and Geneva. A Swiss Travel Pass for 4 or 8 days could work well for you if you plan to do several other day trips during your stay (they also cover local transport).

Another alternative is the Swiss Half-fare Card which gives 50% all train travel while in Switzerland and could be worth the purchase cost depending on how many trips you will take.

Take a look at our how to choose the best Swiss rail pass page for help in choosing.
