I have a couple of questions for our trip in September, that I hope someone can help me out with!
Part of our trip from Lugano to Tirano, we would like to take the post bus, then from Tirano take (local) train to Poschiavo where we are spending the night.
1. Should we make reservations on line for the post bus, using the Bernia site? We have ordered the Swiss Flex pass can we get a discount ordering on line? Do I need a code? When will we receive our passes? We ordered about 4 weeks ago.
2. Would it be better to stay in Pontresina instead of Poschiavo? Any hotel suggestions? From there we are going to Zurich, should we take the Bernia Express or regional train? Is it worth getting off in Chur to look around or any other little city? When we book the post bus should we book the train part too?
3. We are going from Zurich to Paris, CDG by TGV. What part of Zurich would be a great place to stay and be close to (which?) train station? Suggestions on a hotel and any restuarents? Book the train from Zurich to Paris on the sbb.chc site or the tgv-europe.com? If thru the sbb site are the tickets mailed to my home or we have to pick up in Switzerland? I read that when I book my train going from Paris to Lausanne on tgv to use Great Britain as my base and can pick them up in France at any station, does that work with the Zurich-Paris using tgv?
I appreciate all your help!!
