We are a couple - traveling with my wife visiting Switzerland end of July month.We are reaching Lucerne by train from Zurich airpoint. Plan is to stay 5 nights in Switzerland - 2 nights in Luzern, 3 nights in Interlaken, . We would likely do a day trip to Bern by train from Lucerne. At Lucerne, plan to do cog rail to either Mt. Rigi or Mt. Pilatus . Then we will travel by train to Interlaken. We are planning on visiting Jungfraujoch. And then planning to take train to Milan(Italy) from Interlaken.
My questions are:
1. For travel within Switzerland, is the best pass the Regional Berner Oberland pass or should I consider Swiss pass or something else? Which of the above trips I noted are fully covered in the Regional Berner Oberland pass, and which ones are discounted?
2. Other than getting the pass, I assume I also need to book specific train reservations using the pass, i.e. I can't just use the pass to board trains, correct? If so, which website should I use?
3. For the travel from Interlaken to Milan, are there multiple website options that are available to book trains, can you recommend any?
