Hello Anthony, and thank you for joining MySwissAlps!
The Swiss part of your trip could look like this, for example:
- October 11: travel from La Spezia to Lugano
- October 12: travel to Tirano by bus, and then from Tirano to St. Moritz by Bernina Express
- October 13: spend a day in or near St. Moritz
- October 14: travel by Glacier Express from St. Moritz to Brig or Zermatt
- October 15: spend a day in or near Zermatt
- October 16: travel to Interlaken. You may want to use the scenic regional train via Goppenstein, rather than the quick tunnel connection.
- October 17: spend a day in the Jungfrau region
- October 18: travel to Geneva. You may want to use the scenic Golden Pass line for this route.
Details of all connections can be found in the timetable. I've added some in-between days in the towns you've mentioned in my proposed itinerary, as they allow you to actually explore a bit of the regions you're passing. To me, that would be more attractive than simply traveling from one town to another, but of course you can add such days or simply leave them out of your itinerary. Please follow the links I've inserted to learn more about the towns, regions and scenic trains.
Your Eurail Global Pass will cover most of your traveling. Please review our Eurail Global Pass validity page to find out what's covered in Switzerland. This is what you'd need additionally:
The Italian Eurail Global Pass discounts can be found by following the link on our Eurail Global Pass page, under 'More on other websites'. Additional costs can be found by entering your trip in the timetable, picking a connection and clicking 'Fare/buy'.
I hope this gets you started!
