Hi Marianne. Thanks for joining MySwissAlps!
If this is the only Swiss journey you plan to make, you're best off getting regular train and bus tickets. The timetable provides all details for your journey. First you need to catch a train to Zernez. You can arrange for these train tickets online beforehand or buy them at the railway station of Zurich Airport.
Next, there's the bus from Zernez (close to the border but still in Switzerland) to Livigno in Italy. Seat reservations or pre-purchased tickets aren't necessary, you can just buy tickets from the bus driver or at the Zernez station.
Note that if you also need to return from Livigno to Zurich Airport, a Swiss Transfer Ticket will be cheaper than regular full-fare tickets. It's easier as well, as it covers the entire route without the need of any further tickets.
I hope this helps!
