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)
- 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)
