The train ride takes in one of the most impressive sections of the Bernina route, including views of Lake Como, the spiral viaduct of Brusio, and the mountains of the Bernina Pass. As you cross into Switzerland, pass snow-covered peaks, wild gorges, and Swiss Alps, before stopping at the ski resort of St Moritz.

Response from Zani Viaggi V, Responsabile relazioni pubbliche at Swiss Alps Bernina Express Rail Tour from Milan
Responded 16 Feb 2020
Dear guest, I am sorry you did not fully enjoy our tour. But I would like to say that the purpuse of this trip is not to get to St. Moritz as fast as possible. Our tour is design to enjoy a one of a lifetime train ride experience. Climbing the Alps with a pace of another time, savoring every twist and where every turn is a photo opportunity. If you want just to visit Sankt Moritz and take a ride on the Bernina Express, one day is not sufficient. Best regards
