Hi Swissdec2017,

Welcome to MySwissAlps! You'll find all rail passes explained here. I'd recommend the 3-day Swiss Travel Pass. It offers a 50% discount on the Museum of Transport, the Titlis cableway and First gondola. But the First gondola does not operate between October 23 and December 17. The rest of your trips is free until Domodossola, including the boats on Lake Lucerne. You need Swiss Travel Passes for the adults and order along free Swiss Family Cards for the children. They will travel for free everywhere. An alternative is the Swiss Half Fare Card (50% off on all transportation, museums not included).

Additionally you need tickets from Domodossola to Milan.

There is a similarity between the cliff walks on Titlis and First, but they're in a different area and on a different altitude. However, First will be closed. Please see our Grindelwald page for other activities. A trip to Kleine Scheidegg (on the Jungfraujoch route) would be nice to enjoy the views.
