Hi, would love some input as I am going around in circles? We have a month of European travel with some time in Switzerland and can't work out which travel pass is the best option. Planning on 2nd class travel.
We will have 4-5 weeks in Lausanne with some local travel by trains/boats so thinking of getting a half fare card for this time?
We then have 2 weeks in Italy before returning to Switzerland as follows and thinking of a swiss travel pass flex for 4 days and using it day 1, 2, 3 & 6 and maybe a half fare card for days 4 & 5?
Day 1 Milan to Zermatt
Day 2 Glacier Express Zermatt to St Moritz
Day 3 St Moritz to Locarno (Bernina Express to Lugano then local/regional trains OR all regional trains for entire trip - trying to work out if the number of train changes are too difficult with 2nd option)
Day 4 Local trips around Locarno using boats/trains
Day 5 Local trips around Locarno on bus to Sonogno
Day 6 Locarno to Zurich to fly out to Prague then travel onwards through to Krakow, Vienna, Budapest over the following 2 weeks.
thanks for any advice as to swiss travel pass based on above plans.
