Basel vs Zurich or Lucerne

We end a river cruise at Basel and can take an extra day. Should we stay in Basel, travel to Zurich or Lucerne?

Is it easy to go from Basel to a flight from Zurich or Lucerne?

All three cities are nice. It is easy to travel from Basel to Zurich or Lucerne. It takes about 1 hour oneway to Zurich or Lucerne by direct trains. But it costs both ways, second class around 50-80 CHF per person ... maybe one reason to stay in Basel.

If you decide to not stay in Basel, I would recommend Lucerne (because most tourists prefer it over Zurich).

Go to www.sbb.ch/en/home.html to find train details and Lucerne is the best choice also there is a direct train from Lucerne to Zurich Airport.
