Lyon to Geneva to Lauterbrunnen to Genoa

Hi, and thanks in advance for the advice!

A friend and I are planning a rather ambitious itinerary of Europe, and \we are having a little bit of trouble with this particular leg: Lyon - Geneva - Lauterbrunnen - Genoa. This is a lengthy post, apologies!

Here are some of the rough details:

- We will have a Eurail pass (but I heard it doesn't cover Lauterbrunnen)

- The desired time spent is at least a full day each in Geneva and Lauterbrunnen (so maybe another half a day or so to cover travelling)

- We are both youths and are planning to get international driving licenses (21 - 25 years old)

Our questions:

- How best can we save money? Is it worth it getting a Swiss Pass to cover the Lauterbrunnen leg?

- The ideal is to do as many night trains as possible to save on accommodation and maximise time; are there any such options for this leg?

Possible alternatives that we are considering:

- Skipping Lyon and Geneva and going south from Strasbourg to Lauterbrunnen before heading to Genoa

- Skipping Lauterbrunnen or Genoa (although we would really like to see the Riviera, even if it is just via train)

Please advise!
