Cross the Alps the old-fashioned way by taking a leisurely trip on the scenic Bernina Express. Passing through World Heritage-listed landscapes, the line negotiates 55 tunnels and 196 bridges, reaching a realm of icy glaciers before descending into Tirano, a small town in northern Italy. Panoramic coaches with enlarged windows offer sweeping views of the region's mountaintops, best appreciated when the train passes through a 2,253 m (7,391 ft) high mountain pass skirting a pristine alpine lake. Purchase your tickets well in advance, and check the website for return trip options via Lugano, a lakeside resort town in the Italian-speaking southern section of Switzerland. Using our world travel planner, Chur attractions like Bernina Express can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
