48 hrs in Zurich- public transport costs?

Hi we will be spending 48 hrs in Zurich, arriving on an early morning flight from Australia and leaving early morning by train two days after. What is the best ticket to buy?

This will need to include travel from the airport (probably tram because we love trams), possibly a funicular ride and also a trip out of town but not too far.

Not really interested in the Zurich card unless the experts think it is good value.

That will be just 2 24 hours 3 zones tickets. If your funicular ride is within city limits that would be included.

For "out of town" but within the Canton destination it may be worth considering a ZVV day ticket for your first day, or just pay the difference in addition to the 3-zone ticket.
