I have been getting questions-on and off this blog- regarding whether purchasing a rail pass is actually cost effective.
Recently, one of Living Amused readers posted a question under “Ask a Travel ?” page that I thought would best be answered in more length.
She is planning to travel to Switzerland and Italy next June. They are a family of 4 (2 children 16 & 18) and will be arriving in Zurich and heading straight to Bernese Oberland (B.O.). They have 3.5 days in Switzerland before heading out to Venice and their primary interest is to hike/walk around B.O.
She wants to know whether a rail pass is beneficial for their travel itinerary.
