I've hit a wall. :) It's been two days, and I'm still not sure how to best prepare for our July 1 - 18 trip to Switzerland and Italy. I've considered buying 2 Select Passes (EURAIL) to cover our longer train legs from Zurich (airport) to Murten, Murten to Venice, Venice to Rome, and Rome to Naples. From Naples, we'll take the Hydrofoil/ferry to Ischia.
We're staying in Murten with friends for five days and anticipate going to Ballenberg together, as well as Bern... They have cars, but I'm not sure how much we might drive vs. take trains/transpo together. Our first five days with them will be flexible and spontaneous. I'm thinking Point-to-Point tickets will be the most straightforward plan for hanging out with them, but, then I got myself confused (I'll spare you the details, but imagine yourself in my head - SwissPass? No. Yes. No. Maybe? EURAIL options? Yes! No, no. Only point-to-point...??? Wait a minute, which pass did what?).
From Naples, we will fly back to Zurich and stay in a hotel overnight there before our flight back to the U.S. I believe I chose the hotel b/c it has an airport shuttle, but if not, we'll take the local bus/tram/train as necessary to get there and back to the airport the next morning.
Thanks in advance for any light you can shine on my options!
