Need help on my trip to Italy, Paris and Switzerland

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip to Italy (Rome, Pisa, Florence, Venice), Paris and Switzerland (Lucerne, Interlaken). Needed some help on the same.

My itinerary looks like this:

Day 1: Fly into rome late night. Check in a hotel near the Roma Termini. Relax
Day 2: Start with colloseum, Roman forum in first half of the day. Visit Pantheon, Trevi fountain and spanish steps in second half.
Day 3: Spend the day in Vatican city exploring Museums, St Peters Basilica.
Day 4: Catch morning train to Pisa. visit Leaning tower and the cathedral and go onwards to Florence. O/n in florence.
Day 5: Visit statue to david, michelangelo. Catch evening train to Venice. Overnight in Venice.
Day 6: Take a gondola ride. Spend the day lazing aroun. Catch a overnight train to Paris.
Day 7:Reach Paris. Visit Louvre, Champ the elysses, Cathedral, Notredame, Pont Neau and later in the day visit montmarte and eiffell tower.
Day 8,9: Disneyland
Day 10: early morning train to Interlaken.
Day 11: Visit Junfrauzoch. overnight in interlaken
Day 12: Travel to Lucerne. Overnight in Lucerne.
Day 13: Travel to Mt. Titlis. Overnight in Lucerne.
Day 14: Travel to Zermatt. Overnight in Lucerne.
Day 15: Spend day in Lucerne and travel to Zurich to take the flight back.

Key queries:

Does it make sense to buy tickets on the go or buy a Eurail pass?
Difference in 1st, 2nd class?
Do i need reservation on trains or just go n sit anywhere? what are the reservation charges?
What about the overnight train (does it come under the passes or is it separate from passes?
Any suggestion on itinerary? (i am spending two days in Disneyland as my 3 year old kid loves it)
I am divided on Florence and Naples as i can only visit one place. Also, does including Milan makes sense.
Also, how safe are the places we are visiting to roam around at night. Any precautions needed.
