The experience was very nice and the landscapes are breathtaking. We arrived in St. Moritz at 12 and at 14.48 we had the Bernina train, perhaps a little short time to eat and do things calmly, even if the city is not very big. The Bernina train is very beautiful up to Alpe Grunn then in fact the landscape is monotonous and I expected better from the helical viaduct, I probably did not appreciate it because the meadows were not yet green.

It was fabulous...tirano is a lovely town and the bernina express is easy to find. The scenery is mind blowing and the seating very comfortable. Make sure you bring food and water with you as we ended up getting off in St moritz and it was wonderful but expensive. Would highly recommend it. Also it's a very long day so books and earphones too

It was a great experience! The views were breathtaking! The train and the stops right on schedule. Would do it again if the opportunity came up. Highly recommended!

The Panoramic train is a thing on its own. The views are spectacular and the ride is awesome. Loved every single minute of it.

Confortable seats at the train. Duration of the trip from Tirano. Astonishing views.
