Switzerland and Italy Rail

I plan to travel in Switzerland and Italy from April 3 to 15 by Rail.

Apr 3 - Zurich Airport to Geneve

Apr 6 - Geneve to Milan

Apr 7 to 9, Milan and Lake Como

April 10 to 13 - Florence, Pisa, Venice and Cinque Terre (Vernazza and Manarola)

Apr 14 - Rome

Hello Peter,

Thanks for the question.

It is best to purchase Eurail Italy - Switzerland Pass for your travel.

To purchase the Pass click "Here".

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. With a Pass you can travel on regional/intercity trains within a country.

In order to book seat reservations, 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!!!

Best Regards,

Leora, Rail Europe Travel Expert.
