Marvel at the transforming landscape as you leave behind bustling Milan and head for the foothills of the Swiss Alps. Board the Bernina Express and journey through gorges and past glacier lakes, reaching heights of 7,400 feet (2,250 m) before alighting in the chic winter resort of St Moritz.
After a scenic coach ride crossing the border from Italy to Switzerland, you board the “Little Red Train”. When it comes to spectacular scenery, the Bernina Express promises to be one of the world's most breathtaking train journeys. The train travels over curved viaducts and through winding tunnels, passing wild gorges, icy glaciers and stone fields. All carriages offer excellent views of the landscape through wide, panoramic windows and glass roofs.
After this incredible 2.5-hour trip, you reach the premier ski resort of St Moritz, a playground for the glamorous and wealthy. Peruse the boutiques and cafés during your free time in the town and keep your eyes peeled for famous faces before returning to Milan.
