Help with itinerary from Zurich to Milan and trains

Jump to last reply

Hi - We are a couple flying into Zurich and traveling by train to Milan in early Sept. Airfare seems to be cheapest going this way. We are interested in experiencing the beautiful scenery.

Here are my questions:
1) Any input on making Milan a one nighter and adding the extra night to either Zermatt or Locarno?

2) Any advice on buying train tickets for this route? Do they have weekly passes? Is it cheaper to buy online ahead of time or when we arrive?

Tue - Arrive Zurich - 1 night
Wed - Train to Lucern - 2 nights
Fri - Train to Interlaken - 2 nights
Sun - Train to Zermatt - 1 night
Mon - Train to Locarno - 1 night
Tue - Boat ride to Stresa. Train to Milan for 2 nights.
Thu - leave Milan a.m.
