A nice slow journey, in the times of these places where you always walk or ride without haste. The water that flows everywhere, the glaciers unfortunately no longer eternal up to the flower garden of ST. Moritz, showcase of worldliness

Everything went smoothly. The booking process was very easy and I received the tickets quickly. The trip with the Bernina Express was wonderful and should be on every bucket list.

Take the reverse trip from St.Moritz instead of Tirano as there are only small mountain roads to the city of Tirano. The Bernina experience is the same.

Unforgettable journey through the wonderful landscape of mountains, lakes, spectacular glaciers. I will definitely be back.

The booking went smoothly. I received the reservation and the tickets quickly and I am very satisfied with the process.
