For those of you that are doing the double header, when are you flying to Switzerland?

I'm heading out to Georgia on the Wednesday, with the match being on the Saturday I'm torn on when to head to Switzerland.

An extra night in Switzerland is working out pricey and I reckon Georgia is the nicer of the two places to be in between games but if there is barely anyone left around Tbilisi by that stage it might be worth it.

Whats everyone's plan?

Heading to Georgia on Thursday but travelling to the moon and back to get there, so don't arrive until Friday. Haven't booked a flight out yet but plan on going to Milan and staying Sunday night there before heading to land of the cuckoo clock on the Monday.

Flying Kutaisi to Milan on Monday 14 October for €65 (wizzair). Flight is 16:00, landing 20:25. It's still that sort of price.

Booked a twin room in a hotel in Milan for €90 for the night (€45pp), right across from the train station.

Train to Zurich or Bern is €29, Basel or Geneva is €39, on the Tuesday; I'll book that much closer to the time.

I think we'll likely get the train from Tbilisi to Kutaisi on Sunday 13 and spend the night there. It was dirt cheap the last time we were there. Like 50c a beer cheap.

Thinking of the same Itinerary as SD, I'll definitely stay a night in some European city between the 2.

What was Kutaisi like the last time for those who were there?

An absolute sh*thole with mad taxi drivers and very few pubs. But you only need to find one and if there are a crowd of us, they'll stay open.

Not really, just making sure that my stay in Switzerland isn't too short.
It can be very frustrating when things are too short.
Am I right?

Stayed a night in kutaisi last time round, never been in a cheaper city, private room with ensuite at starhostel cost me €9, drank in pub barcelona for about ,.80cent a pint. National sports m is located in kutaisi too, you will need a group of ye to stay to have some sort of craic because after 9pm the place is fairly lifeless (midweek anyway).

Not much going on there. Is ok for a stopover but wouldn't want to be spending too much time there

So you created a thread because you couldn't make up your own mind whether your stay in Switzerland is too short? so you decide to ask random people on the internet for advice by setting a poll? are you thick?

whats next..... a thread and poll wondering is your trip too short in Gibraltar because you don't know whether to fly to Malaga or Faro and whether to rent a car or bus. Confused

Everyone's flight information is either in the Tbilisi thread or the Swiss thread.

Have you decided against the Bernina express? I'm mad to see what it's like.

I did it a couple of years ago. It is spectacular.

Also, the flight only lands in Milan the Monday evening before the match. You can't get to Basel on time on the match day (Tuesday) if you go via the Bernina Express. If you want to go that way, you'll need to fly to Milan on the Sunday. You'll probably have to get like a 6am flight though, from Tbilisi to Istanbul to Milan Bergamo, with Pegasus.

There is another option: fly from Kutaisi to Roma on the Sunday, leaving 16:00, landing 18:20. You then have a good while to get from the airport to Roma Termini (30m ride, train every 15m). Then there is a night train to Milan Porta Garibaldi station, leaving 23:55 arriving 07:12. That train is €50 for a couchette, €70 for a bed in a 3 bed compartment. That gives plenty of time to get across to Milano Centrale for the 10:10 to Tirano, arriving 12:52, giving an hour and a half for lunch before the 14:25 Bernina Express. The bus to Kutaisi leaves Tbilisi at 9am, which is a bit better than having to be at the airport for 5am for an early flight.

If you want to book it, make sure you book it from Tirano to Germany via Basel with Deutsche Bahn, even if you don't use the section beyond Basel. That is easily the cheapest way from Tirano to Basel. Also make sure you book the Bernina express, the one leaving Tirano at 14:25 direct to Chur. You can book the seat reservation for the panorama coach separately for like €15 extra. It is probably worth it.

I'd probably still go with the early morning Tbilisi - Istanbul - Milan option on the Sunday with Pegasus, a night there, then onto Switzerland on Monday via the Bernina, if you do want to do it.

My list. 

Pint with the madman with the capital letters - I believe we have same criteria for Faro

Buy SD a pint because he is a legend and should have his own website. 

Grow my balls big enough to do the double header. I have the Swiss part booked up.
