Italian Swiss Help

Jump to last reply

I need some help and advice.

I'm a total noob when it comes to train travel in Europe. I'll be bringing my wife on our honeymoon in March/April 2012.

We are planning to spend 14 nights in Italy and Switzerland (flying into Rome, flying out Zurich). Below is a rough itinerary that I put together.

Rome 3 Nights > Train > Venice 3 Nights > Train > Milan > 2 Nights > Train > Tirano > Bernina Express > Chur > Glacier Express > Andermatt 1 Night > Train > Lucerne 3 Nights > Train > Zurich.

When I say train, I'm referring to the fastest train between the two locations. If I miss out a scenic train route that I can take based on the locations, please let me know.

Do you guys think this itinerary is feasible? Also, can you guys recommend a railpass for the entire trip like a Eurorail Pass? Or should I be looking at a point-to-point pass for Italy then a railpass like a Swiss Saver Pass? Or just a point-to-point pass for the entire trip? This part about figuring the right pass is really confusing for me :/

Also, please let me know if I missed out any great scenic train routes. Appreciate the help. Thanks in advance.
