Hello mprades and Welcome to MySwissAlps,

By "travel option" do you mean best mode of transport? If so, trains.

Are you intending to stay in Bern for 10 days and do day trips from there?

Unless you have a particular reason to stay in Bern you should look at finding two or three bases.

You may wan to look at some sort of travel pass. Before you can know for sure which pass suits your travel plans you need to do the sums based on the cost of all your planned trips on trains, boats, cable cars etc. You can use the Swiss Train Timetable ( metable) to work out the fares for any trip. When you go to buy a ticket the fare you see on the right hand side of the page will normally be the half-fare price. Double it to get full fare. With A Swiss Travel Pass it is free provided it is shown as free on the Area of Validity map ( PDF downloadable from isstravelpass/validity).

The timetable mentioned above will give you the fastest route from Bern to Como. If you want to follow a more scenic route let us know.

You should read “How to choose the best travel pass” ( ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass).
