Inesquecível! que viagem incrível! vale cada centavo! Super prático, facil localização de encontro. Fomos de van até st. Moritz, no caminho paramos na estrada para um café, super gostoso. Paramos numa cachoeira para fotos, lindíssimo. Subindo para Sta. Moritz, começou a nevar! Que experiência maravilhosa! Ficamos umas 2 horas livres, tirando fotos na neve... Descemos de trem de st. moritz até Tirano. Viagem linda!! A van já estava a nossa espera e voltamos a Milão. Super recomendo!!
