My 15 year old son and I fly into vienna out of Geneva in July and will have 12nights to travel. We are thinking of going from Vienna to salzburg to Innsbruck to bern to Lausanne to Geneva. Do u suggest I buy a eurail or point to point tickets or a Swiss pass of some kind or a combination of some kind? I am traveling with my 15 year old son who is an artist. Do we need to have advance reservations on the trains if we do buy a train pass? Should we buy point to point tickets in austria and a Swiss pass for Switzerland since my son is 15 years? Is it cheaper to buy point to point tickets ahead or at the train stations? When we are in Vienna is there a city pass to purchase for transportion from the airport and to the train station when we leave?
How many nights do u suggest for each stop? Are there any other places u would recommend ? the itinerary is not set in stone. Where do u suggest we stay in each place? We want to be centrally located to be able to walk to sights be safe but affordable. Any suggestions and recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much
