Traveling from Italy into Switzerland

Hello there!

My partner and I would be traveling from Milan to Switzerland for a holiday. We plan to go around Lucerne and Zurich.

Would someone please tell us what would be the best way to travel from Milan to Lucerne (or Zurich)? I tried my best to rummage through the forum lists. But I wasn't. Sorry this might have been asked many times before!

Thanks in advance
Sudhir

Are you driving? If so, try googlemaps for directions. Best way is through the Gotthard tunnel but make sure you time it right. Just follow all the other cars from the Netherlands.

Have you tried looking at a map with roads on it instead of a forum?

The train from Milano Centrale to Zurich takes 4 hours and stops at Zug, but not Luzern.

There is in fact one direct train every day which terminates in Luzern (departs 15:10 from Milan).

All others stop at Arth-Goldau, from where it's an easy half hour to get to Luzern.

Re: Traveling from Italy into Switzerland

Thank you everyone for your responses. I got all the information and more

We will be traveling by train - now that so many useful tips have been provided here. Earlier we were wondering if we should take a bus or a train.

Cheers!
