Full description

Spend a full-day traveling to St. Moritz on this exciting rail journey. The Bernina is one of Switzerland's most scenic railways, climbing more than 1,800 meters, making it the steepest railway journey in the world. Round-trip transfer from Milan is included in the tour. Your rail journey begins in Tirano, Italy, and takes you all the way to the world-renowned Swiss mountain resort of St. Moritz. Tirano is a picturesque Mediterranean town in a mountain setting dotted with palms and oleanders. The train ride will take you from an altitude of 429 meters up to 1,829 meters! You’ll cross the spiraling viaduct at Brusio and the Bernina Pass to the alpine valley known as the Engadin. On the journey you’ll marvel at the scenery of the Alps. UNESCO named the Bernina route a world heritage site. You’ll see monumental glaciers, cross steep gorges, and pass through tunnels under some of the area’s most massive mountains. In St. Moritz you’ll have time to explore Switzerland's most famous mountain resort before the return journey to Milan.

We (me and my friend) had a beautiful day on this trip and we very much enjoyed our guide Sara. She was well informed and she cared about the tourists (unlike the guide from the yesterday trip to Lake Como with Bellagio and Lugano day trip from Milan that forgot about us and left us in Switzerland to get back to Milan by ourselves. Neither the guide or the GetYourGuide cared about this even if we paid a lot of money for that trip). Sara counted the tourists at every meeting point and even searched for the missing ones. She got us all back safe and happy to Milan! ( I actually wonder with how many passengers the other guide returned to Italy). Please be aware of this and travel safe!

Book this tour early (it is very popular). You will see most of beautiful scenery from the bus or train but your guide will give a lot of interesting information and will tell you when to prepare to take pictures! The views are breathtaking and inspirational! The Bernina express travels at a pace that you can take a lot of pictures and appreciate the mountains, lakes, villages, the snow and trees! St Moritz is beautiful, clean and picturesque! Awesome trip!

The trip to St. Moritz and the red train that crossed the Swiss Alps were two fantastic experiences. Breathtaking landscapes and memories that I will carry forever in my heart. As a honeymoon I have chosen these destinations that I have always wanted to see. Thanks to the Zani travel agency in Milan for making this happen and a big thank you to their guide named Eddy; for his sympathy and his professionalism. Can't wait to travel with them again.
