What To Expect
The newest alpine delight in Graubünden: There is twice as much to see as before along one of the most beautiful railway routes in the world - on board the Rhaetian Railway panorama coach. The journey begins in Milan, then Tirano (situated on the border between Italy and Switzerland).
In Tirano, explore the city at your own pace. Get a chance to visit some of the city's remarkable attractions such as the San Martino Church, Palazzo Salis, Basilica of the Virgin, Church of Santa Peroetua, River Adda and many more.
The Bernina Express is a 2 and half hour ride from Tirano train station towards St. Moritz. Along this route you pass wild gorges, soaring bridges, fascinating loop tunnels and white glaciers close enough to reach out and touch. Travel from the crisp snow down to the palms and oleanders of Northern Italy. The Bernina Express runs daily in the summer. In the winter, only the train to and from Tirano is operated. It offers first and second class service as well as panoramic coaches.
The Rhaetian Railway's north-south Alpine crossing offers breathtaking views as you travel over boldly curved viaducts, through winding tunnels and past ice-age glaciers. From Tirano, the excursion continues in modern buses through the Valtellina Valley to St. Moritz.
