Full description
From up among sparkling glaciers and down to a land of palms, the Bernina Express offers a change of scene like no other. No other railway links north to south in such a wonderful manner on trains with glass-topped panoramic cars that traverse no fewer than 55 tunnels and 196 bridges, easily tackling inclines of up to 70 mm/m along the way. Come aboard for one of life’s finest cultural and natural-world experiences.  At 7:30 AM, depart by bus from Milan Piazza della Repubblica to the cosmopolitan city of St. Moritz Upon arrival in Saint Moritz, enjoy time at your disposal for a panoramic walk along the lake area, some shopping, or a sweet-tasting in one of the delicious local pastry shops. Discover the city at your own pace and find a spot to eat lunch at one of the many cafes or restaurants.  In the early afternoon, head over to the train station and get seated in one of the panoramic carriages on board the Bernina Express Train bound for Tirano. Admire the view as the train travels into the mountains. Gaze in awe at the stunning panoramas of the Morteratsch Glacier and the world famous Montebello Curve. Continue past the lakes of Lago Bianco e Laj Neir up to Alp Gruem. Arrive in Tirano before boarding a bus to make the return journey to Milan with a scheduled arrival of between 8:00 PM and 8:30 PM.

Thanks to Laura and Bruno we had the best experience in Italy. We enjoyed this little trip very much, we felt special because they took care of us and gave us all their attention during the trip. We highly recommend to anyone who wants to visit Italy and we will definitely come back again.

Unforgettable! what an amazing trip! worth every penny! Super practical, easy meeting location. We went by van to st. Moritz, on the way we stopped on the road for a coffee, super delicious. We stopped at a waterfall for photos, beautiful. Going up to Sta. Moritz, it started to snow! What a wonderful experience! We had 2 hours free, taking pictures in the snow... We got off by train from st. moritz to Tyrant. Beautiful trip!! The van was already waiting for us and we returned to Milan. I highly recommend it!!
