If you’re in Milan, we highly recommend going on the Bernina Express Tour. If you’re tempted to DIY (we almost always do), do reconsider. There are just too many details to consider that the $$$ savings will not be worth the aggravation, and you wouldn’t...More

There are regular train services which run along exactly the same route departing Tirano 09 00, 11 00, 13 00 (BEx) leaves at 10 00 so you should be able to get a ticket on the day if you can be flexible with your times.
