We are travelling from Lugano to Zermatt on April 2017 and I was wondering if there is faster way than our route, which is:

Lugano - Locarno - Domodossia - Brig - Zermatt

Also, I understand it passes through Italy and if we have Single Entry Shengen Visa, are we barred from entering?

Hi Luthienbabe:

The timetable defaults to the fastest route: metable

See what it can tell you.

This map can help you understand the routes available: ?pos=711040,117888&z=2

Zoom in to see rail routes.

An alternate route goes through Göschenen.
