Hi fslim. You can plan your trips from Milan and to Paris with the aid of the Swiss timetable. If you enter your route, date and preferred traveling time, all options will be displayed with further details if you click the 'plus' icon. There are direct Eurostar trains between Paris and London. You can arrange for tickets and seat reservations through the seat reservation page.

By March/early April quite some cable cars and mountain trains will be closed down. You can visit some beautiful viewing points such as the Schilthorn and the Jungfraujoch though. Scenic trains trips, e.g. to Lucerne via Meiringen and Brünig, and in the direction of Zweisimmen and Gstaad, are an option too.

Depending on your exact travel plans, a rail pass such as the Swiss Half Fare Card or the Swiss Card will probably be more economical than buying point to point tickets.
