Traveling within Switzerland and Milan


I'm planning to buy Swiss Travel Pass and travel from



-St Gallen


-Bernina Express from St. Moritz to Tirano



-Arth Goldau - Mt Rigi

-Pilatus Kulm

-Mt Titlis



back to Zurich

* stay 3 days at Milan

Can you arrange for me using the shortest traveling time between each city and where to include Milan and I need to stop at custom office to do tax refund.

Do I need to buy Italy pass or just buy one way train ticket?

Italy pass can be use for subway?

I'm bringing along 9 friends and each of us has a luggage bag to carry.

Thank you so much.

Dear Carine,

Thank you for your question.

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

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. This discounts can only be availed locally by showing your Swiss Pass to the ticketing office in Switzerland.

For journey outside Switzerland you will have to book point to point tickets.

Scenic trains will require reservation.

The pass seats can be reserved by clicking on "seat reservation" & then 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.

In order to book a pass, please visit our website.

Hope this helps!!!
