we are arriving in Switzerland June 10th from Bologna. Not sure what kind of pass to get and how to plan our 5 days. Looking at the Euro 2 country pass but seems very expensive. Definitely want to see Mt Titlis and Jungfrau. pls suggest

thank you

Hi Funswiss and welcome to MySwissAlps!

The Eurail Select Pass may be best if you are also planning on a lot of train travel in Italy.

If your travel in Italy is limited you would be better off buying a specific Swiss rail pass.
The correct pass really depends on a few details:

  • What cities are you staying in while in Switzerland
  • The routes and destinations in Switzerland
  • How often you will be taking trains, boats, buses etc while you are here.

The best option to start is to read through our "how to choose the best rail pass" and then have a look good look at the Swiss Travel Pass - it is the most popular.

There are also other rail passes to choose from for different regions only rather than the entire country - again depending on the areas you are staying and exploring while here.
