This is not primarily a rail trip, but rather a very long bus tour with a short rail trip squeezed in. Not good if you get car sick easily, which I do. I had to get off the bus after the first 2 hours, which I spent vomitting into a bag as discreetly as possible. I then had to take a dirty passenger rail back to Milan, which took another 2 hours. They really need to do a better job selling this as a BUS TOUR through very winding and steep mountains. There is no bathroom on the bus either.
