If you want to go across the Bernina pass rather than using the bus from Chiavenna, enter via Tirano on http://www.sbb.ch/en/home.html

If you want to buy tickets on http://www.sbb.ch/en/home.html you must buy from Chiavenna or Tirano. Italian trains from Varenna to/from these places require no reservations, but you must buy tickets in Italy before travelling, as there are no ticket sales at Varenna station.

Happy Holiday Homes based in Menaggio organise a day trip to St Moritz on the Bernina Express every Monday. Why not let them do all the organising for you?

I really don't think Happy Holiday Homes organise the trip to St. Moritz as i don't think they have a guide or a tour bus! Maybe they just pass on the booking to Porticciolo Viaggi tour agent in Menaggio.... Who do have the afore mentioned..l but maybe I am wrong.

Yes, I wouldn't be at all surprised - they would have to act as a broker. I recommend them though because they are so helpful and all the staff seem to speak good English.

We did the trip by train from Varenna only the other day - fabulous. It is a long day with a number of choices of times. Book a day or two before you want to go after you get to Varenna. There is a booking office on road just below train station (next to a hotel) and they will do it all for you. Varenna to Tirano - then change to either the Berlina Express (2 hrs) with panoramic windows or Berlina train for a few dollars less (2.5 hrs) not much different . We went up on one and back on the other.
