Hello Amanda27, and thanks for posting!
You can best get Swiss Half Fare Cards, giving you 50% off nearly all transportation in Switzerland. Please find details and prices here: www.myswissalps.com/swisshalffarecard.
The Wilhelm Tell Express is an excellent way to travel from Lugano to Lucerne. Hotel suggestions can be found on the Lucerne page.
Please note that Lucerne and Zurich are only 45 minutes apart by train, so there are no nigh trains, if that's what you had in mind. The timetable shows all the travel options.
thank you so much for this information....I have some more questions for you...
is it cheaper to buy a half pass on line? or should we just get it on the spot? if on line, when should we purchase it, we will be in lugano on may 22nd....
does the wilhelm tell from lugano to lucerne, need to be booked ahead of time or its ok to purchase it when we are in lugano?
is there a half pass 1st class and second class, what is the difference in price , what is the difference in privileges?
from civitavechia to rome to lugano, which rail pass should we get the may complement the half price swiss rail pass?
there are 8 of us, would having 10 people as a group benefit us in terms of prices?
thank you so much again...
