My family and I will be coming from Florence June 2018 and are looking at train travel. I have look at Eurail 4/5 day pass and also have look at Swiss Half pass for tourist which is the 50% off all trains in Switzerland and 50% most mountain cable car type activities.
Thoughts from any and all regarding which to do. I think the cost is similar (+/-$100) but if we do more than 2 mountain tours it will be even better for Swiss Card. The Eurail card could save some hassle but cost more if we did more than expected mountain expeditions and charges for advance tics. Also seems that it is easy to get tics early on Italian trains at discount and then the same for Switzerland trains.
We are looking at Rome - Florence then Florence to Zermatt for 2 days then to either Lucerne or Engelberg for 2 days then Lucerne for 1 or 3 days and then finish with one night in Zurich before we head out. Thoughts on staying in Engelberg and doing Mt. Titlis or Mt. Pilatus or just stay in Lucerne the 3 days and take train to Engelberg.
Thanks for thoughts from all.
