Board the Bernina Express, the historic red Swiss mountain train, for a ride along one of the most beautiful railway routes in the world. After a coach ride from Milan to Tirano, board the train to travel on the UNESCO-listed Bernina Express route with its unsurpassed alpine views. Look out at the Swiss Alps as you ride along the Bernina Pass to St Moritz, and then enjoy free time to explore the chic mountain town before your return to Milan.
  • Rail tour from Milan aboard the Bernina Express
  • Take a scenic coach tour to Tirano, located at the foothills of the Swiss Alps
  • Travel by train through the Bernina Pass to elegant St Moritz
  • Pass stunning alpine scenery, including glacial lakes
  • Enjoy free time to explore Tirano and St Moritz
  • Learn about the region from a guide as you travel
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.

Very nice - Big down side you do not get enough time in st. Moretiz Switzerland. We went on a Sunday Shops were closed and we had time to visit one chocolate place before we had to run like crazy not to miss the bus back

Everything went very smoothly. Excellent driver and guide. Spectacular panoramas and the Church of Tirano. Breathless views of the Alps.I highly recommend this tour.

St. Moritz was charming and we saw a lot of cute towns and sites while on the Bernina Train. However, I hope we had more time to spend in St. Moritz. We were only given 45 minutes. Considering how the bus stop was a good 10-minute walk from the city center, we had to choose between exploring the town versus buying souvenirs.
I would not recommend getting the lunch package. It was a set meal with caprese salad and spaghetti with tomato sauce - nothing else - for 16. Another couple from the same tour group told us that they spent the same amount at another restaurant for really good pizza. There are lots of dining options in Torino. Don't buy the one they sell you on the bus.
Our English tour guide didn't make it better, either. She looked exasperated when we asked her to repeat the instructions to the bus stop she walked really fast and wouldn't wait for the people to catch up. The Spanish-speaking tour guide was a lot better.

If you're going to Milan, this is a must do tour. There are no words to describe the views and experience you get on this train ride.

This was the highlight of our trip. The breath taking sights were amazing. Saw ice glaciers and beautiful mountains skyline. Word can’t really explain. This is one for the bucket list if you haven’t don’t it.

The male tour guide was awful. A screaming baby ruined the trip. Age limits should be set. Never again.

We extended our Italy vacation for an additional day to take the Bernina Express tour. Wonderful experience with breathtaking scenery and excellent tour guide.
