Experience the beauty of Lake Como and the stunning views from atop the Swiss and Italian Alps on this full-day tour from Milan. Stop in the historic lakeshore village of Varenna — one of the lake’s most charming — and enjoy lunch in the Valtellina valley before ascending the Alps on the scenic Bernina Express train. The UNESCO-listed ride lets you straddle two countries and one of Europe’s great mountain ranges.
Go beyond a basic Lake Como tour with this alpine adventure
Explore the lakeshore village of Varenna and dine in Valtellina with an optional lunch
Ride the Bernina Express train up glaciers and into the Swiss Alps

We were in complete awe of the whole experience . It was amazing from start to finish. How can I even put it into words just absolutely beautiful. My compliments to Giovanni our guide for making this one of the unforgetable in my lifetime
Highly recommended Lake Como & Bernina experience ...

We enjoyed this tour immensely. Our guide Luca was very professional and helpful throughout the tour. We were received at Varenna staton and taken to Tirano from where we took the beautiful Bernina Express train a few stops short of St Moritz and then went the rest of the way to St Moritz by road. From St Moritz we drove back to Varenna. For those of you with motion sickness, please be careful during the return car ride.
Luca took care of us by recommending a great place to eat for our special dietary needs. He was also very polite and patient talking to us through the tour. Luca is quite passionate about his job and enjoys it thoroughly, and we experienced that. A special word of appreciation for Giovanni who drove us through the whole trip and made us feel comfortable.
We as a family highly recommend this trip.
The tour was an experience beyond expectation. All the locations - Lake Como, all the small Italian towns, the Alps as seen from the Bernina Express, as well as St. Moritz are well worth seeing. Our tour guide, Luca, was very knowledgeable. He treated us more like friends than tourists, and made sure all our photos were perfect. Will definitely recommend this tour to everyone.
Fantastic Tour guide and gentleman!
Makes me proud to be an Italian American.
He was very responsive before the trip and he provided so much information during the trip.
He was so nice and kind to my wife and college age son.
He got to know us and our background while we were driving to each sight.
We enjoyed getting to know his background.
I told him if I have any family members planning on going to Lake Como area in the future, I would refer them to him.
Fantastic Bernina Express tour with amazing views.
Awesome Wine and Cheese Cellar tour.
Varenna was a quaint village
Lunch in Tirano was amazing, as usual in Italy.
Tour guide even made sure we got back on the train for our return to Milan.
A CLASS ACT !
