Hello! We are planning a trip end of the year to Switzerland, coming from Paris to Lausanne for a day (via TGV). Upon arrival at Lausanne, we plan to buy the Swiss travel pass for the next part of our journey.
Question 1: I assume the Swiss travel pass can be easily purchased at the tourism office or the train station at Lausanne. Please correct me if I am wrong about this.
Then, we move on to Lucerne for 2 days. After that, Lauterbrunnen for another 2 days. At both places we plan to use the public transport extensively, hence we wanted to get a 4-day Swiss travel pass.
Question 2: After that we are going to Florence, and I am not sure what to do regarding the train travel and would like some advice. I am thinking of buying individual tickets - Lauterbrunnen to Spiez, Spiez to Milan, Milan to Florence, which means I need 3 different tickets? If so, how do I buy these tickets in advance? Do I have to get off the train at each interchange and get the tickets before boarding the next train forward? I am also concerned about the short window of time we might have to change trains.
Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
