I am planning on traveling to Switzerland this summer with my family of 4. I plan to arrive in Bern by train from Milan and plan to stay in Bern except for the last day when I will be staying in Zurich. Here is what I am considering:
Day 1: Start from Milan by train and arrive in Bern around noon, check-in and do a quick half-day Bern city tour
Day 2: Day trip by train to Montreux, Gruyeres and Broc
Day 3: Day trip by train to Interlaken and Jungfrau
Day 4: Day trip by train to Grindelwald and Wengen
Day 5: Day trip by train to Lucerne
Day 6: Travel by train from Bern to Zurich and Zurich city tour.
Day 7: Return flight from Zurich to Vancouver
Prior to Milan, I will be spending a few days in Florence, catching a train to Venice (2 nights) and then catch a train to Milan (1 night stay).
I was wondering what type of rail pass would work out better for us? Should we go for a swiss travel pass or a Eurail pass? Also, is it fine to keep Bern as a base and do day trips to the places mentioned or should I break up my stay to stay a few days in Bern and elsewhere?
