Trains from Geneva to Lugano

We are travelling from Geneva to Lugano and are planning to travel by Train. Do any one have good tips, ex. what is the best route? via Luzern or Zuerich ?

And is it recommended to reserve tickets ?

Thanks!

Best regards

Would suggest the Centovalli route. A little longer, but spectacular. Routing is Geneva -Domodossola (trains from Geneva to Milan) - Centovalli line to Locarno -Lugano (may have to change in Bellinzona or Giubasco).

Use www.sbb.ch to look up schedules and pricing. Not generally possible or necessary to reserve, though the Centovalli line can get busy during holiday times.
