Explore Switzerland and Italy on the Bernina Express
There are not many places in the world where 2 ½ hours will take you through a landscape from ice-age glaciers to palm trees, but that’s the Bernina Express route. This Swiss scenic train serves cities including Lugano, St. Moritz, and Chur to Tirano. You’ll ride with ease from Switzerland to Italy, relaxing as you glide through the countryside, enjoying sweeping vistas of Alpine crossings and dramatic gorges. You’ll pass over 196 timeless bridges and through 55 winding tunnels – all viewed through spectacular panoramic windows in First or Second Class.
If you choose to do the entire journey (available in the summer only), you’ll continue on to Mediterranean/Italian-inspired Lugano by modern bus, passing through charming Swiss scenery along Lake Como. Make sure you don’t miss out on this incredible adventure and sightseeing by reserving your tickets in advance.
