in reply to Wandermann
Thanks Annika and Wandermann for your reply.
I am in a dilemma now. I checked the train schedule and found that there is no direct train from Milano to Interlaken. The cheapest fare will take more than 4 hours and have to change at 3 stations. In fact, my wife and I are no staying in Milan. We plan to come up from Rome and stop over at Milan for a few hours before traveling into Switzerland. So changing 3 stations and 4 hours plus to reach Interlaken is also very tiring. Moreover, we can't be sure that the next day going up to Jungfraujoch will have good weather.
If I travel straight to Lucerne and stay for the next 4 days, I can choose the day when there is a good weather to travel to Jungfraujoch. Because I remember I read on this site that there is possibility of bad weather. I will be travelling in early October, generally weather will be good?
Moreover, I have booked accommodation in Lucerne, although there is cancellation policy, I don't know if I am allowed to cancel one of the days in between of my stay. I am confused.
By the way, can I check if travelling in October as peak period? Do I have to buy ticket in advance for train or I can still buy on the spot?
Thank you very much.
