Train tickets from Switzerland to Venice and back with Swiss Travel Pass

Jump to last reply

I need help to figure out when and where and how to book train tickets to Venice during our 14 day vacation in August. Also, any advice/suggestions to our itinerary would be appreciated.

We are a family of four (sons 13 & 20) and will be flying into and out of Zurich (July 29 to August 12th). We plan on buying the Swiss Travel Family Pass. Our rough itinerary is as follows:

Day 1: Dinner with friends in Bern. Stay in Bern.
Day 2-6: Arrive in Wengen, Spend 3 nights in Wengen/2 nights in Murren (we wanted to see the mountains from both sides and love to hike)
Day 7: Leave Murren and spend night in Luzern (I know it won't be enough time to spend there!)

Day 8: Here is where I need help. Taking the train from Luzern to Venice. How, where, and when do we purchase train tickets from Luzern to Venice and then from Venice back to Switzerland and still take advantage of the Swiss Travel Pass. I understand the pass works until Domodossola or other border cities but I'm not clear of the logistics. Do we simply buy tickets online at trenitalia.com before we leave for the leg from Domodossola to Venice and again for Venice to Domodossola on the way back and then stay on the train or do we have to get off and on the train when we switch countries?

Day 9-10: Venice

Day 11: Leave Venice and go back to Switzerland with plans for Montreux the following day.. Any advice as to where to stay when we reenter Switzerland? Maybe Brigs?? We want to visit the Castle Chillon the next day and then have two nights in Vevey.
Day 12-13: Stay in Vevey. Take Swiss Chocolate Train
Day 14 Leave Vevey and back to Zurich (6 AM flight the following morning)

Thank you in advance for any advice/thoughts you can give me. This forum often explains things clearer than any website or guide book could. Thanks to all who take the time to help us befuddled tourists!!!
