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.

Red train to St. Moritz

We got the travel agent coach from Milan. Red train from Tirana to St. Moritz. Well worth the trip. Although out of season, St. Moritz has all shops closed and lacks the atmosphere of an in season visit.

Turned out pretty good

As per the previous comments there is a lot of time spent travelling on the bus. When we finally got to Tirano we were told the train wasn’t going to St. Moritz and was only going part of the way (due to the bad weather)....More

Disappointed. St. Moritz closed in October. Lots of wasting time. Buy your own ticket for just the Bernina Exp.

I was so excited for this tour, but it was a disappointment. The only part worth doing was the actual Bernina Express Train, so I would recommend getting your own train tickets to Tirano, then get on the Bernina Express and back to Milan. Started...More

Stunning landscapes.

As per other reviews - did not appreciate getting pushed into paying for pre-reserved lunch offered on the bus before arrival in Tirano. Found it expensive and not worth it. Plenty of other options you'd probably enjoy much more, so don't be pushed into it....More
