Hi Yap, and welcome to MySwissAlps,
In Switzerland you travel best by train and mountain transport to get up to the mountains.
You should read “How to choose the best travel pass”. A clearly mapped out itinerary is the basis for deciding which pass suits. Based on your itinerary you need to do the sums based on the cost of all your planned trips on trains, boats, cable cars etc. The page has a spreadsheet to help you.
You can use the Swiss train timetable to work out the fares for any trip. When you go to “buy a ticket” the fare you see on the right hand side of the page will normally be the half-fare price. Double it to get full fare. With a Swiss Travel Pass it is free provided it is shown as free on the validity map which you can download here.
You can visit Lake Como from Lugano as a day trip. Lake Lugano is beautiful too, so I'm not sure if you need to visit Lake Como.
