Need advice on train itinerary France-Switzerland-Italy

Jump to last reply

I will be traveling with a friend during August. We are starting in Paris, and I am trying to figure out a reasonable--and scenic--route to get to Italy. We end out journey out of either Rome or Venice.

We would like to go through Switzerland, but I am not sure which route would make more sense. I was thinking of staying a night in Colmar, then staying 2 nights in Lucerne, Interlaken or Zermatt ( i am really open to suggestions ).
Alternately, we could skip staying in Switzerland, but travel through Switzerland to Chamonix, though it looks complicated ( 4 transfers). If possible we would love to be able to take one of the scenic trains en route-maybe the Centovalli or the Wilhelm Tell Express?

We then want to take the train from Switzerland to La Spezia.(Cinque Terre)

Here is our tentative itinerary. Any comments or suggestions are appreciated. Aslo, we will be using a Eurail 3 country Select pass . We are both 21 and could get the youth pass, but we are wondering if getting a 1st class Supersaver would ensure reservations during that busy time?

Thanks.
Day 1-5 Paris
Day 6- Depart Paris-Colmar ( 1 night)
Day 7- Depart Colmar for Interlaken or Lucerne or Chamonix
