Hello Amit,

Thanks for your question.

Book and travel as follows:

- London to BrusselsEurostar train.

- Brussels to AmsterdamThalys train.

- Amsterdam to Paris – Thalys train.

- Paris to Lucerne via BaselTGV Lyria and Eurocites trains.

- Lucerne to Mt. Titlis – Book and travel locally. Return the same way.

- Lucerne to Schaffhausen via Zurich – Other trains. Return the same way.

- Lucerne to Interlaken – Eurocites train.

- Lucerne to Kleine via Lauterbrunnen – Eurocites trains.

- Kleine to Jungfraujoch – Eurocites train. Return to Interlaken.

- Interlaken to Lucerne – Eurocites train.

- Lucerne to Milan via Arth Goldau – Eurocites and Cisalpino trains.

- Milan to VeniceFrecciargento train.

- Venice to Pisa via Florence – Frecciargento and Eurocites trains.

- Pisa to RomeIntercity or Frecciabianca trains.

Purchase separate passes, that is Swiss Travel Pass and Italy Pass. The initial part of your journey from London to Amsterdam to Paris to Basel can be point to point tickets. This being because most of your travel will be within Switzerland and Italy.

These passes would give your extensive travel within the two countries on all regional and national train services.

Children below 16 years are free if accompanied by the adults having a Swiss Pass. We issue a Swiss family card for children

With a Swiss Travel Pass you can travel free within Switzerland on the STS (Swiss Travel System) network on trains, buses and boats. Also with a Swiss Pass you would get discounts on mountain excursions within Switzerland. These discounts can only be availed locally by showing your Swiss Pass to the ticketing office in Switzerland.

With a Swiss Travel Pass you can travel free on intercity trains within Switzerland.

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.

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!!!
