Transportation/Train from and to Zurich

Hi, this is my first time and I will stop over Zurich for 2 days so I need some tips on the transportation/train fares.

This is my schedule:

Day 1: arrive Zurich Airport -> Zurich city

Day 2: Day trip from Zurich -> Lucerne/Mount Pilatus -> back to Zurich

Day 3: leave Zurich by train -> stop over Milan -> Rome

Question: should I buy the train ticket separately or there is some kind of pass/package that is suitable for this plan? Thanks for your advice.

As you are only there for a short time then it is not worth your while having a pass.

For your trip to Pilatus you can buy a railaway excursion from the ticket counter at Zurich.

For your ticket to Milan check out www.rail.ch or www.trenitalia.com you may be able to buy an advance discounted ticket.
