Driving from Turin to St Moritz

We're going to be driving from Turin to St Moritz at the end of the month. Can anyone suggest a particularly attractive route? We're not in any particular hurry and don't want to go the most direct route.

Thanks.

Try the following route which offers many scenic parts:

From Turin take highway A4 towards Milano, then A26 north until Arona. Leave the highway and drive along Lago Maggiore. If you have some time stop in Stresa and take a boat tour to see the Borromee Islands. Continue along the lake shore until Intra. Take the ferry to Laveno. Drive along the other shore to Luino. If you're lucky it's market day there - it's one of the largest and most interesting ones of the area! Continue to Lugano and then eastwards along the lake. Stop in Gandria - it's a very picturesque fishermens village with streets as narrow as no car could pass. Then accross the boarder to Italy. From here the road gets narrow and winding, but just be patient!. In Menaggio you reach Lago di Como. Drive along the western shore northwards, still on narrow roads. At the end of the lake you have two possibilities:

1. the more direct route goes via Chiavenna (interesting small town) and Maloja pass (very winding, but good road) to St. Moritz. A little side trip would lead you to the beautiful mountain village of Soglio.

2. If you still have some more time, you could drive up the Valtellina Valley until Tirano and from there through Poschiavo valley and over Bernina pass. You would see some spectacular mountain scenery on this drive!
