I am finishing up a week of travel in Lake Como, Italy
on 6/16/12. I then plan on taking a train from Lake Como to Wengen that day. There is also a possibility that I will accompany my travel partners to the Milan
airport before training to Wengen on that day. I was just starting to research which Swiss discount rail pass (I’ll refer to it from here on out as generic 'RailPass' since I don’t know yet which variety I’ll be using) would be appropriate for me and I became confused as to how the Italian and Swiss Railroads interact with each other regarding recognition of train passes. I am sure that regardless of whether I originate from Lake Como or Milan that a Swiss RailPass obviously has no effect but I’m not sure as to when I cross into Switzerland on a train that originated in Italy what will be covered by a RailPass. In addition to getting from Italy to Wengen I will also be staying in Wengen for 4 days and very likely be using trains there as well. I then train toLucerne
for a 2 day stay before taking a train to Zurich for my flight back to the States. So, I have two questions:
1. Can anybody enlighten me as to what if any part of my journey from Italy to Wengen by train would be covered by a RailPass.
2. Given my itinerary, any suggestions as to which RailPass would be most appropriate. I’ll be traveling solo.
