Do I need to book train Switzerland to Italy in advance?

Jump to last reply

Hi all

Travelling from Grindelwald to Verona on 28 September (3 people).

Have looked up trains Grindelwald to Milan (Depart 07:19, Arrive 11.35) via Spiez and Brig.

Is there any point in booking these in advance or can I book when in Grindelwald? I also plan to buy a Swiss Card when in Switz., which would actually make part of the journey free, so can I even book without having the Swiss Card now?

And what about the onward journey Milan to Verona? How easy is the transfer across platforms, etc? Do I book this in advance?

Thanks for any advice.
