Milan- Bern- Zermatt-Milan-Verona pass?

My family will be staying near Milan (MXP airport area) and was planning to do a mini trip to Bern, Switzerland and then to Zermatt in the same day. We plan to stay in Zermatt for one night and come back to Milan (MXP airport area) in the evening the next day. Also, we want to see Verona the next day or so. Any ideas on what plan would be the best? Also, my son who is 3 years old, will be traveling with us, does he need a pass for the rides too?

    Hi Tina,

    For the requested itinerary, I would just recommend purchasing point-to-point tickets, as opposed to a rail pass. In any case, there is no dual country pass for just Italy and Switzerland.

    You can check ticket costs and schedules for the requested routes under 'Check Fares and Schedules' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com. These trains can be booked at any point within 90 days of an intended date of departure.

    You would not need to purchase tickets for your 3 year old. Children under the age of 4 are able to travel for free. He would not have a seat of his own, so he would sit on your lap. If you wish for him to have a seat of his own, then you would purchase tickets at the child rate by classifying him as a child when you search for schedules and fares on our website.

    Since you are staying near the Malpensa Airport, you would first have to go into the city of Milan to make your connection to Bern and to Verona. You can do this by taking a local train or a bus out of the airport that will take you right into the Centrale station in Milan. You would just pay locally to board this local train or the bus. The train would take about 40 minutes in duration, and the bus would take about 50 minutes.
