I was wondering if I could get some advise on which Swiss Rail Pass to buy. We will be arriving from Italy. Our first stop will be Lugano. We will be there for 2 nights. We would like to do one boat cruise and a trip to Mt. Bre. Would the cruise and cable car to Mt. Bre be included with the Swill Rail Pass?
We will then be going to Lucerne for 3 days. We would like to go to Mt. Rigi, I know that the train ticket will be covered and so will the Mt. Rigi trip along with any boat cruise there.
Lastly, we will take the train to the Zurich Airport for our flight home.
I guess I want to know what is actually covered by the Swiss Pass so I can decide if I should buy the 5 day pass or the 4 day flexi pass.
Lastly, once I buy a pass, how do I actually get a seat on a train?
Your advice is greatly appreciated.
