Italy - Switzerland 12 days trip. Main stay Italy (train bookings and reservation)

I am travelling from zurich airport/Lucerne - 24 july

lucerne/Milan 25th July

Milan/Lake magoorie 27th july

Lake magoorie/Milan 27th july

Milan/venice 30th July

venice/florence 1st Aug

florence/siena 2nd aug

siena/ Pisa 2nd Aug

Pisa/ Milan 3rd Aug

Is there any pass to avoid high cost of individual booking? Should all travelling be done by train. Please suggest if any travelling will be cheaper by other mode of transport (except rental cars).

From where should I do booking? and is it necessary to early?

Hello Neha,

Thanks for your question.

The best option for your travel would be the Italy Pass as you would be traveling extensively within Italy.

This pass would give you extensive travel on all regional and national trains within the country.

Keep in mind that seat reservations would be mandatory for all High-Speed, Night, Scenic and Border Crossing trains. But, you will avail pass holder/discounted fares for these journeys with the pass.

For your travel from Lucerne to Milan you could purchase point to point tickets as Lucerne (Switzerland) is not covered by the Italy Pass.

To purchase the pass click “Here”.

In order to book tickets, please visit our website.

The pass seats can be reserved by clicking on "Seat Reservations“ & feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares.

Please click on the “Fare Details” tab to view details regarding the type of fare, type of seat, whether a reservation is included or not and the After Sales Policy.

Hope this helps!!!

Anthony, Rail Europe Travel Expert.
