Lovely train trip from Tirano Italy up through the Alps and down in Zurich. Views were magnificent, we chose the First Class section which has the panoramic windows and well worth the extra cost. There were superb green valleys and hillsides and bright blue & green lakes. The climb out of Tirano is excellent where the train turns back onto... More

Views are amazing and breath-taking! Look out for the blue and black lakes and the snow on the mountain tops. Magical experience in this red train that that takes you high into the Alps. St Moritz was a wonderful stop and very nice lake and shops. Worth a day trip!!!

Beautiful train ride through wonderful scenery and the train takes you high into the alps. You pass bright blue lakes, very high peaks, and go along very winding tracks. It really is worth doing. We were there in September 2016 and snow was expected during the week we left. It must be even more beautiful then. We took a coach... More

This pass was a shortcut from switzerland to italy. Very fast and good roads. Nice to ride. But nothing special here, when you are looking for a thrill.

Decided to do a road trip from London though 6 countries across Europe and Switzerland was one of our destination(Samedan). This was the highlight and most memorable road trip ever(with 2 young boys). Went through Bernina Pass on our way to Tirano, Italy and the experience....wow! the bends and curves, waterfalls, height mountains........

Travelling by car only to St. Moritz, Switzerland from Artogne ,Italy , we thought it was just simple. It's about 3 hours of driving. My husband and I did not expect that the GPS will bring us to the Bernina pass which gives us the most amazing road trip I have experienced. The view is spectacular and the feeling is... More

We took this one day trip last week and loved every minute of the day. The fringe benefit was escaping the heat of Milan. We rode the train with the windows open and enjoyed mother nature's air conditioning as the train worked its way up into the snow covered Alps towards our destination - St. Moritz.The panoramic cars allow for...
