We are a group of 8 travelling first time to this beautiful country. We will each zurich on 7th morning and need to plan the best 4 days .

So far I have heard that lucerne is a good base and travel with swiss pass is very cost effective.

Can someone please advise what could be a first time must see trip and how to go about travelling and if can recommend hotels 2 rooms for the dates 7,8,9,10.

On 11th early morning we have flight to Venice from zurich.

Hi harryb, welcome to MySwissAlps!

Lucerne indeed is a very good base. You'll find lots of tips for activities on our Lucerne page. I suggest you start reading the tips there and put together an itinerary. Once you have a tentative plan, please feel welcome to post it here and ask further questions!

Hotels can be found here. If you're not able to find what you're looking for, please mention your requirements in our accommodation forum.

All about the Swiss Travel Pass can be found here. Purchase options are listed at ravelpass/price. An onlince purchase through the official SBB tourist webshop at en is easy and recommended.
