I'm planning a trip to Switzerland in August. I was thinking of Interlaken (3 days)-Lucerne (2days) -Zurich (1day).
1. I'm getting a little confused about booking tickets from Milan to Spiez (for reaching Interlaken). Should I book Milan to some border town (if so which one?) using Trenitalia and then step onto a Swiss train using a Swiss pass?
2. Also, does it make sense to buy an 8 day Swiss pass as compared to buying point to point tickets? I'm flying back from Zurich. Are all trains on my route covered by the pass?
3. Do the Switzerland trains need to be booked in advance, (including the one from the border town to Spiez) or can I hop on with a pass / purchase the ticket at the station, given peak season of August?
Thanks a lot for your help in Advance! Going a bit crazy trying to figure out if it will be more economical to invest in the pass or not, and how to go about the booking!
