Overview
The Bernina Express between Switzerland and Italy is one of Europe’s most spectacular train journeys and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This tour whisks you across the route in one day, with everything planned ahead of time, including a coach ride to Tirano, a ride on the Bernina Express railway to St Moritz in Switzerland, free time in the Swiss resort town, and a return to Milan by coach.
What to Expect
Meet your guide in central Milan and set out on the journey to Tirano on air-conditioned coach. Soak up the scenery as you head north into the foothills of the Alps, and enjoy free time to explore Tirano.
Next, step aboard the red-painted train carriages of the Bernina Express and enjoy unbeatable views from panoramic windows. The around 2.5-hour train ride takes in one of the most impressive sections of the Bernina route, including views of Lake Como, the spiral viaduct of Brusio, and the mountains of the Bernina Pass. As you cross into Switzerland, pass snow-covered peaks, wild gorges, and Swiss Alps, before stopping at the ski resort of St Moritz.
In St Moritz, enjoy lunch (own expense), admire the alpine scenery, or stroll the historic town and browse for souvenirs.
After meeting with your guide, return to Milan by coach, where your tour ends at the departure point.

Really poor tour

This easily was the worst tour I’ve taken on TripAdvisor. The guide told us nothing about the history or area as we traveled to St Moritz by bus and train. The trip was so rushed that after going all that way we only had 1...More

Great views, but most of the time is spent on a bus

If you are a person who likes to discover things for yourself then don’t waste you money on it. Most of your time is spent on a bus, I’d say about 80% of your day. When you arrive to Tirano, you are taken to a...More

Good trip, was rushed

Our tour guide was great, and the train was great. However, you spend WAY more time in Italy than you do in Switzerland, which I felt wasn't expressed so much in the description. You spend a lot of time through Tirano, which I really didn't...More
