From Milan: St. Moritz and Bernina Express Panoramic Tour

1. From Milan: St. Moritz and Bernina Express Panoramic Tour

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. In the morning, depart by bus from Milan Piazza della Repubblica to the cosmopolitan city of St. Moritz. Upon arrival, enjoy time at your disposal for a panoramic walk along the lake area, some shopping, or sweet-tasting in one of the delicious local pastry shops. In the 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. Experience one of life’s finest cultural and natural-world experiences on a train that traverses no fewer than 55 tunnels and 196 bridges, easily tackling inclines of up to 70 mm/m along the way. Admire the view as the train travels into the mountains. Gaze in awe at the 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 in the late evening.

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!!

The experience was very nice and the landscapes are breathtaking. We arrived in St. Moritz at 12 and at 14.48 we had the Bernina train, perhaps a little short time to eat and do things calmly, even if the city is not very big. The Bernina train is very beautiful up to Alpe Grunn then in fact the landscape is monotonous and I expected better from the helical viaduct, I probably did not appreciate it because the meadows were not yet green.
