What You Can Expect

Swiss Alps Bernina Express Rail Tour from Milan

Bernina Express Rail Tour to the Swiss Alps from Milan

Well known by its moniker ‘the Little Red Train,’ the Bernina Express was designed to climb the Swiss Alps with ease. A testament to engineering work completed more than a century ago, the train is still able to complete the cliff-clinging Bernina Pass on a route that now has UNESCO World Heritage status.

Travel from Milan to Switzerland in the morning, and relax on your coach journey to Tirano. After some free time in the town, board the Bernina Express and gaze out of your window as the historic train passes through the idyllic stretches of Northern Italy and the Swiss Alps.

Ride over the spiral viaduct of Brusio, and along the Bernina Pass to Engadin. After 2.5 hours on board, watch the scenery change from windswept gorges and snow-clad glaciers to the chic chalets of St Moritz.

Hop off the train to enjoy roughly 1.5 hours of free time in the town. An elegant vacation spot that’s popular for winter sports, St Moritz has a bounty of attractions to keep you busy. Stroll the lake, ogle the snow-specked mountains that ring the town, enjoy lunch or browse the local chocolatiers to sample Swiss chocolate. All food is at your own expense.

In the early evening, return to Milan by coach. Your tour of Northern Italy and Switzerland finishes with a drop-off at the start point.

Hubby and I took this tour and enjoyed it thoroughly. Loved it so much I went back the next summer and brought my parents along who enjoyed it even more. One of the most beautiful train rides in the world, period. The Italian town where you board is a great place to experience an authentic lunch and do some shopping before you board. St. Moritz is such a picture postcard city. Definitely check out the delicious chocolate stores there. The bus ride back is absolutely stunning. Highly recommend this tour!

This was an amazing trip with some wonderful scenery all along the way. The rail trip was excellent despite nearly missing it due to the group leader moving off from the agreed meeting point far too early!! Maybe not enough time given to us at St. Moritz to have a good look round. It was a long day but well worth it seeing some incredible sights.
