Traveling to Switzerland on September 2 solo. I’m overwhelmed by so many beautiful places to visit. I will be flying into Zurich. Stay 4 days between Zurich and Montreux, then 2 days in Annecy, France then back to Switzerland for 5 days (Zermatt and St Moritz) over to Italy (Milan, Venice, Florence, Cinque Terre, Tirano) for 7 days, back to Switzerland for 2 days. Not sure if I should get Euro pass for 21 day pass or Swiss flex pas for 15 days and 1 country Italy pass for 8 days. I know I have too many places on agenda but don’t know what to cut. I am a 74 year old lady and won’t be doing any hiking and probably not any museums. What suggestions can you give me.

Hi Kittyc3,

Welcome to MySwissAlps.

Based on your plans, a Eurail Global Pass might be practical as you will be travelling in multiple countries. Be sure to check out the validity map and see if it covers the destinations on your itinerary. A Swiss Travel Pass Flex could also work but not sure if this gives you the best value. I recommend listing all your travel plans in Switzerland in detail, then compare the cost with the help with our spreadsheet here: www.myswissalps.com/train/ticketspasses/practical/chooserailpass

If you get a STP Flex, then you need to arrange to get separate country railpass for France and Italy. Would that be practical for you?

Let us know if you need further help.

regards,

Anna
