hello! thank you in advance for your help!
we are trying to figure out if half card or swiss pass is better (8 or 4 day). we are trying to optimize for price and we are two youths.
high level overview:
(day 2 travel) Chamonix->
(day 4 travel) zermatt->
(day 6) zurich (or day 6 lucerne-> day 7 Zurich)
we arrive saturday night in geneva. i understand travel from the airport to town is free and we will be taking most likely a taxi to our accomodaion from the train station (but maybe a bus? not sure how easy/safe that is at night)
Day 2: after exploring Geneva, we will go to chamonix.
i know this is covered by swiss pass, but the pass doesnt cover anything in Chamonix like the Aiguille du Midi. is there any sort of discount for the Aiguille du Midi?
Day 4: in the evening we want to take the panoramic/scenic train to Zermatt (does that make sense/is it possible?)
i believe this will be covered by swiss pass
Day 6: we plan to take train to lucerne and spend the night there and go to zurich on the morning of Day 7(ie that too hectic?) or to go straight to zurich.
we will be in zurich only one day before flying to a different country.
what should we do? what is most economical?
should we get the 8 day pass to cover whole trip? it doesn't sound like itll cover anything in chamonix and not sure if free museum is worth it?
would the half pass fare be more economical? also any discounts for Aiguille du Midi?
thank you again! im looking forward to learning from you.
